On a rainy day when you'd think the Panthers would be careful with their franchise quarterback recovering from offseason ankle surgery, they turned him loose.
Cam Newton ran the read option and was allowed to scramble for the first time in training camp. He did it under a steady downpour and showed no issues.
We just had a story about Newton still feeling discomfort in his foot, so this is quite a turnaround, especially, as the story indicated, since the conditions weren't ideal. Good news for potential Newton owners that he's getting his wheels back to normal. This is also after WR Kelvin Benjamin showed signs of being ready to take on a big role in the offense.
