Panthers Open Camp in South Carolina

Spartansburg, SC - A steady rain and muggy conditions greeted the Panthers for their first training camp practice at Wofford College on Saturday morning. Despite the less than ideal weather, which resulted in a lot of sweaty players and slippery footballs, head coach John Fox praised the team's high-energy level and good attitude but said they must build on this first practice to get where they want to go.
First-round pick Jon Beason is not at camp. The team reached a
stalemate in negotiations today with the linebacker out of Miami. General manager Marty Hurney says the two sides are, in his words, "miles apart."
The team did ink second-round pick Dwayne Jarrett to a
four-year, three-point-eight (m) million-dollar contract.
