They signed then-free agent Jeremy Shockey, who made a nice number two tight end for a little while, and traded a third round pick to the Bears for Greg Olsen.Olsen has since made himself an indispensable part of the Panthers’ offense and Cam Newton’s career. It is ironic that a quarterback often labelled as a runner—in a deragotory manner Jordan Scarlett Carolina Panthers Jersey , no less— has never put his best foot forward on the field without his favorite pass catcher in sight.That speaks volumes for Olsen’s talent and work ethic, two traits that will also hopefully buoy him along his path to recovery from a recent and uncharacteristic spat of injuries that have kept him largely off the football field for the past two seasons. The Panthers are throwing everything they can at the wall right now in an attempt to shore up the tight end position behind Olsen and their promising young tight end, Ian Thomas Blue Jordan Scarlett Jersey , but they are banking on getting at least one more season of the consistency that made Olsen a household name in the Carolinas.All reports on Olsen’s recovery are positive thus far. He may be the oldest guy on the team now, but he is still showing up in Organized Team Activities with highlight reel catches. It doesn’t seem crazy to expect at least one more great season out of the team Elder before he retires to the great broadcasting booth in the Sky(Box). The Panthers had three running backs hit free agency when the new league year opened this month, but one of them is now back in the fold.Cameron Artis-Payne‘s agents announced on Thursday that their client has agreed to a new deal with the Panthers and the team made an announcement of their own a short time later. No terms of the deal have been announced.Artis-Payne was a fifth-round pick of the 2015 draft and has played in 32 games over the last four seasons. He appeared in nine of those games last season and ran 19 times for 69 yards and a touchdown while playing 48 offensive snaps overall.The Panthers have talked about lowering Christian McCaffrey‘s workload in the 2019 season after he played over 91 percent of the snaps last year. Artis-Payne Blue Torrey Smith Jersey , Elijah Hood and Reggie Bonafon are the other backs currently on the roster, so another move or two may be coming before that plan is actually put into action.
