Panthers | Greg Olsen financial details

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:29:43 -0800

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen's three-year deal is worth $22.5 million, including a $12.5 million signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from WR Kelvin Benjamin, Olsen was QB Cam Newton's favorite target last season, and was tied with Benjamin for the team lead in receiving yards (1,008). He's a top-tier tight end heading into next season.

Panthers | Greg Olsen signs extension

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:24:02 -0800

Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen signed a three-year contract extension through 2018 Thursday, March 5.

Fantasy Tip: Olsen is one of the premiere fantasy tight ends, when healthy, and has developed a nice rapport with QB Cam Newton. Olsen was one of two tight ends (Rob Gronkowski) to gain at least 1,000 yards in 2014. He should be considered a top-five tight end for 2015 drafts.

Panthers | Greg Hardy eligible to sign

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 10:09:19 -0800

Carolina Panthers impending free-agent DE Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new deal even though he's still on the commissioner's exempt list. NFL free agency starts Tuesday, March 10. However, his playing status remains in limbo, and he isn't allowed to play until he's removed from the exempt list, which might prevent teams from talking to him in free agency. The league has uncovered enough evidence in a domestic violence charge to warrant a suspension, according to a league source.

Panthers | Cam Newton not of interest to police

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 12:10:20 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton is not a person of interest regarding a shooting last weekend in a Charlotte, N.C. nightclub. The investigation is ongoing, according to police.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Newton stays out of trouble and remains healthy (he missed two games in 2014), there's no reason to believe he shouldn't be considered a QB1 in 2015.

Panthers | Carolina interested in Ted Ginn

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 21:13:56 -0800

The Carolina Panthers are interested in free-agent WR Ted Ginn Jr. (Cardinals). According to a league source, the Panthers plan to reach out to Ginn, who spent the 2013 season with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Ginn isn't much for fantasy owners as a receiver, but he is a tremendous asset to those in leagues which reward return yardage to individuals. His addition would give the Panthers DST a little boost in fantasy appeal in standard fantasy formats, too.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams not upset with release

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 09:08:28 -0800

Free-agent RB DeAngelo Williams (Panthers) said he was not upset when the Carolina Panthers told him last week that he'd be released. Williams told Charlotte's WBTV that DE Greg Hardy was the only member of the organization to attend his mother's funeral in Arkansas last May. The Panthers are saying that Williams has not officially been released. The team can save $2 million under the salary cap by designating him a post-June 1 cut. Williams said owner Jerry Richardson's failure to reach out to Williams after his mother's death was "extremely disappointing."

Fantasy Tip: While the Williams release technically isn't official now, it's only a matter of time at this point. At 32 years old and with plenty of injury questions, it's hard to see many teams jumping at the chance to sign him. Wherever he lands, we don't see him being anything more than running back depth for your fantasy squad. Jonathan Stewart should take over as the main back in Carolina after finishing off 2014 with an impressive run.

Panthers | Byron Bell not returning

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 04:17:53 -0800

Free-agent OT Byron Bell (Panthers) will not return to the Carolina Panthers in 2015 and has elected free agency, per a team source.

Panthers | Cam Newton deal won't be rushed

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:32:05 -0800

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton's expected new long-term contract may get done later rather than sooner. The topic of Newton's new deal was not even discussed when Newton's representatives and the Panthers met during the NFL scouting combine. If a new deal is not done this year, Carolina could franchise tag him in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Newton had the worst season of his young career in 2014, partly thanks to nagging injuries and a subpart wide receiver corps. If Newton can stay healthy, though, he still has QB1 potential and should still be considered a starting fantasy quarterback.

Panthers | DeAngelo Williams not released

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 13:18:59 -0800

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams has not been released and is not expected to be released Monday, Feb. 23. It was previously reported that Williams had been released.

Fantasy Tip: Williams could very well still get the boot and Jonathan Stewart should still take over as the main running back in Carolina. Until then, Williams should not be considered more than a flex play while Stewart has RB2 potential.
