We here at NFL Network and NFL.com are getting around. Just check where I’ve been the last few days. To that end, we’re hitting 32 training camps and offering reports on each of them. These training camp reports, kinda like postcards, will all be the same format. A relaxed, kinda cool way to keep you informed on what’s going on in training camp. The first one I did came from the first place I was… even if I actually covered a pre-training camp workout at the Panthers facility. They move into Wofford College today. What did I see from the Panthers? Lots of optimism, and lots of reason to be optimistic. Check out my NFL.com training camp report.
