Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera received a one-year contract extension Thursday, June 16, that will pay him more than $6 million a year, according to a league source. Rivera led Carolina to a 17-2 record and a berth in Super Bowl 50 in 2015 and is under contract through the 2018 season. He's now among the top 10 highest paid coaches in the NFL.

Carolina Panthers DT Kawann Short's possible long-term extension will probably be more complicated considering Philadelphia Eagles DT Fletcher Cox's recent deal, according to Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. Cox's deal averages $17.2 million per year and includes $63 million guaranteed. Those figures could make Short's deal nearly impossible, as general manager Dave Gettleman has proven he doesn't overpay for what he believes a player's value to be.

Fantasy Tip: Bersin doesn't figure to have a big enough role to have merit in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess should take a backseat to Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen in the passing game, but he could be a solid WR4 in fantasy.

Carolina Panthers WR Brenton Bersin (ankle) rolled his ankle in practice Tuesday, June 14, but head coach Ron Rivera didn't know the extent of the injury. It wouldn't be a surprise if Bersin sat out the final two days of minicamp.
Fantasy Tip: Bersin is currently buried on the depth chart and had just nine catches for 119 yards and no touchdowns in nine games for the Panthers in 2015. He shouldn't be on any fantasy radars.

Fantasy Tip: There is some risk with Benjamin coming back from injury, but he'll be in the upper echelon of WR2 territory in fantasy if he's at full health.

Fantasy Tip: Funchess underwhelmed with a 31-473-5 line last year when he was expected to have a large role after Kelvin Benjamin's (knee) injury. With Benjamin back, Funchess will take a backseat to him and Greg Olsen. He could still be a solid WR4, though.
