CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Three weeks of OTAs are in the books now for the Carolina Panthers, but now it’s time to see what these guys have learned the past month.
Carolina’s three-day mandatory minicamp kicked off Tuesday in uptown Charlotte. The team will go participate in two-a-days through Thursday before taking the rest of the summer off to rested up before the start of training camp in late July.
If you ask anyone, this team has seen major improvement so far. But as tight end Greg Olsen puts it, none of this really matters unless they put it all together when it counts in the fall.
The past few seasons haven’t been so kind to Carolina early on.
“No one wins championships this time of year; you can put in the work now, but it really only matters when we start playing,” Olsen commented, “We need to put in the work now and figure out why we’ve started out the past couple years poorly in the first half of the season. We need to correct that because the week 12 runs aren’t cutting it.”
