Free safety Tre Boston intercepted Cam Newton for the second consecutive practice. And for the second time in as many days, the normally loquacious Boston refrained from chirping at the league MVP.

It’s like Boston doesn’t want to poke the bear.

“It’s more about making sure there’s consistency, doing it day in and day out. I want to let my actions do my talking for me right now,” Boston said. “Once we get on the road (against other teams), I’ll get back to talking.”

Boston’s pick Friday came when the offense was backed up inside its 10. Newton tried to hit Devin Funchess in the flat, and Boston made a nice play while keeping his feet inbounds.

“I had to go back to my receiver skills and just tippy-toe the sideline and get two feet in,” Boston said.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton got the fans involved at Friday's Fan Fest by leading them in the wave near the end of practice.

60,000 tickets were given out for the Carolina Panthers Fan Fest practice at Bank of America Stadium. The rain didn't temper the fans excitement for a new season.
