Updates

11:22 a.m.: Ross Cockrell is getting a decent number of reps at safety today — Brendan Marks

11:17 a.m.: Grier with the dime to Aldrick Robinson in the back of the end zone. One handed catch... and then runs right into GM Marty Hurney — Brendan Marks

11:16 a.m.: CB James Bradberry with a hell of a pass breakup against WR Jarius Wright in the very back of the end zone. Would’ve been a tough catch, but nice hands by James — Brendan Marks

11:13 a.m.: Cam to Curtis Samuel, about 25 yards to the right sideline, back of the end zone. Samuel has to stretch, but that’s a pretty combo — Brendan Marks

10:51 a.m.: Kyle Love off on the side getting a cold compress on his neck — Brendan Marks

10:44 a.m.: Ross Cockrell lined up next to Eric Reid at safety in team drills. Has spent a little time there today, but really just glad to see him out there after last year’s camp. — Brendan Marks

10:38 a.m.: Former Panthers safety Roman Harper among those watching practice today. — Scott Fowler

10:09 a.m.: Grier’s arm really looks live today. — Scott Fowler

9:53 a.m.: BTW, Cam Newton IS participating in team drills today. — Brendan Marks

9:53 a.m.: Same lines for first-team DL drills, but looks like Addison and Irvin are rotating more often. Whole point of this 3-4 switch is more disguises, so that certainly fits the bill. — Brendan Marks

9:45 a.m.: Cam Newton tells Peter King he doesn’t have to be Superman anymore. It’s a great interview and kudos to Peter, a legend, for getting it. On the other hand, Cam has been in training camp since Wednesday & hasn’t spoken to reporters who cover the team. — Scott Fowler

9:40 a.m.: Interesting final thing Peetz says before running backs move: On routes out of the flat, he wants backs to look for depth by focusing on a point on the sideline and taking smart angles. Hadn’t quite realized, but makes a TON of sense — Brendan Marks

9:34 a.m.: Part of the stretching drills soundtrack today — some Bryan Adams. Straight from the 80s; gotta wonder who was the DJ. — Scott Fowler

9:33 a.m.: RB coach Jake Peetz walking running backs through drills now. Peetz spent last year at ‘Bama as an offensive analyst, so interested to see what he can do with this group ... Peetz goes to put on a boxing glove and says, “Holyfield, you know how to do this — strap me up!” — Brendan Marks

9:09 a.m.: Center Matt Paradis walking onfield explaining how to say his last name to teammates. Pair-a-Diss, not Paradise or Parr-Ah-Dees. — Brendan Marks

9:05 a.m.: Wanted to re-up this from yesterday: Will be doing a mailbag soon, so send in any #Panthers questions you have and I’ll pick some that stand out. Am already impressed at some of the more detailed ones I’ve gotten! (Tweet Brendan with the hashtag #QuestionMarks) — Brendan Marks
