What are some of the biggest challenges that the Carolina Panthers have faced so far during training camp?

Things have certainly been interesting for the Carolina Panthers during their first few weeks of training camp. This has been a turbulent offseason period in no uncertain terms. And it has the ability to impact Matt Rhule’s new-look roster more than most.

Not much is going to be expected of the Carolina Panthers in 2020. They are undertaking a rebuild of massive proportions. And although these things take time, the organization will need to start trending on an upward curve once again sooner rather than later due to their lofty ambitions to develop off the field.

This is the first time that the Panthers have come together in person during their preparations. The virtual OTAs and minicamps will have been a significant benefit from a theoretical standpoint. But not being able to bring this to team drills until three weeks ago is another challenge they need to overcome.

The NFL faces plenty of upcoming challenges despite their intention to get the season started on time. Things are going according to plan so far. But with COVID-19 cases continuing to rise across the country. Just how much football we are going to see in 2020 remains to be seen.

Carolina has not been exempted from this. And here are the four biggest challenges the Panthers have faced at training camp so far.
