Pharoh Cooper is catching the eye

Pharoh Cooper is someone who has clearly made his presence felt at training camp. He is a dynamic weapon that could be used in different ways by the Carolina Panthers. And his performances during team drills so far have highlighted his ability to be yet another dynamic weapon for the franchise.

Cooper is coming off a campaign where he secured career-highs in receptions and yards gained with the Arizona Cardinals in 2019. This was not enough to earn a longer stay with the organization. But there is a real opportunity for the wideout to get some notable time on the field for the Panthers next season.

The player has made a significant impression on Joe Brady. This is something the new offensive coordinator has relayed this information back to his head coach, who has been equally as impressed by Cooper’s contribution during camp.

"“(Offensive coordinator) Joe (Brady) said it to me the other day, he’s a guy who’s really brought it as a returner, but has done a really nice job as a receiver and he can help us as a receiver. He can help us (with) runs after the catch. He gets open. He knows the routes. He works really hard. I’m really pleased with Pharoh. He’s been one of the guys this camp that’s really shown me something.”"

The Panthers have plenty of prominent weapons at wide receiver heading into the upcoming campaign. Cooper will have to fight for his fair share of targets. But the mark he is leaving now will surely stand him good stead during the season.
