Minicamp gets underway for the Carolina Panthers

With team facilities across the NFL now reopening, the Carolina Panthers are expected to begin their minicamp this month. This will finally give head coach Matt Rhule a chance to get some face-to-face time with his players ahead of the new season.

The franchise has been holding plenty of virtual sessions with its players during the current climate. But there is no substitute for getting on the field in whatever way they can. Given the number of changes undertaken by the Panthers this offseason. Any further delay in the camp would have represented a significant problem from a chemistry perspective.

Players will be itching to get back on the field. And although this is going to be in a far different environment than what they are used to. It should still work in their favor in their pursuit of improved fortunes next time around.

Given how things have unfolded over the last few months regarding social distancing. This will be the first time Rhule has met some roster members. The situation is unheard of at this stage of the offseason. But the next few weeks will be very exciting for all involved as plans gather place for the season opener.

There is still no telling whether there will be fans in the stands during the season. This is a rapidly changing situation and safety must come first. However, despite their lack of presence at camp, it will be interesting to see the Panthers’ new-look roster taking the field in a limited capacity.
