Panthers 2nd-year TE Gary Barnidge working with the first team: He's a guy that's had a good camp. We like to keep competition going. There have been no final decisions to this point, but we try to reward guys who are doing well. It's not where you start the race, it's where you finish. He's had a good camp, he had a good offseason, and we're giving him a chance in there with the ones some.
On what he likes about Barnidge: He's got good receiving skills. He's got a pretty good feel in the passing game. He's becoming a better blocker.
