CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Sam Darnold has been waiting more than 10 months for another chance to prove he can lead the Carolina Panthers.

It doesn't seem quite that personal for Lamar Jackson.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — P.J. Walker remembers looking around the Carolina Panthers' quarterback room at training camp and thinking it looked mighty crowded.

The big question is which one will start this season for Carolina.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule isn’t expecting miracles out of Sam Darnold this upcoming season.
He just wants the fifth-year quarterback to avoid “catastrophic" mistakes, something that plagued him at times last season and during his first three seasons with the New York Jets.
