The day after Panthers GM Marty Hurney said he had a plan to create more cap space, ESPN's Field Yates discovered that $9.05 million of linebacker Luke Kuechly's base salary has been converted into a bonus. This creates $7.24 million in cap space for a team that had only $1.34 million in space previously. This gives Hurney some flexibility heading into the draft.

Biggest surprise of Panthers' 2019 schedule is they weren't scheduled to play a prime-time game on Monday or Sunday night. They are playing on Thursday night against Tampa Bay and Sunday morning against the Bucs in London, but the lack of prime-time games is surely to be used as a respect issue for coach Ron Rivera.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says quarterback Cam Newton is “progressing very well'' with his rehab from shoulder surgery, but he didn't put a timetable on when Newton will be turned loose to throw. Rivera is, however, optimistic that the range of motion Newton talked about regaining after his surgery has been evident. “To a degree, yes. When I've seen him in there getting his rehab done, yes,'' Rivera said. “I haven't had a chance to see him throw the ball yet, but that time's coming. We'll see how he is.''

Chris Hogan seemingly understood New England's decision not to re-sign him, making him available for free agency and ultimately to sign with the Panthers, who need experience on a young receiving corps. “It's a business,'' Hogan said. “I can't read too much into it. At the end of the day they're trying to run the team as best as they see fit. Sometimes things don't work out. I'm just really excited about this opportunity.''

New Panthers receiver Chris Hogan on going from Tom Brady at New England to Cam Newton: “I'm really excited about it. I've been in the building now for a short period of time. Everyone that talked to me about Cam is he's the ultimate competitor. Him and Tom are very similar in that respect. I know I'll enjoy working with him and being on the same field with him. He's an incredible athlete.''
