The Panthers players who have met with new owner David Tepper seem as fired up about his arrival as the league’s other owners were at adding guy worth $11 billion Cheap Baseball Jerseys to their exclusive club.
Tepper flew straight from last week’s owners meetings where he was approved by the league to come to Charlotte to meet with some of the team’s key leaders about the anthem policy, and left them with a favorable impression of the new boss.
“It went great. Rarely do you see an owner come in and want to rush from the owners meeting and just conversate with the guys,” safety Mike Adams said, via Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. “Just talk about everything, us as a team.
“The one thing I took away from it, the one thing I like about him is he’s got that fire and he wants to win. Not taking away from [Jerry] Richardson, but he’s fired up. He’s happy.”
But between the addition of wide receiver/activist Torrey Smith and Tepper’s new openness to listening to players, things could be changing there.
All of that adds up to Bowles feeling like the team has “three good quarterbacks that we can play with” and that those three quarterbacks can make each other better over the next few months.
“They all see different things,” Bowles said in comments distributed by the team. “And if they all can give each other advice on the field about what they saw on certain plays and they all understand the plays that are going on, if they can feed off of each other and take each other’s advice, I think it can’t help but catapult the chemistry to a better level and help those guys play better.”
The Jets and the NFL have a pretty good idea about what McCown brings to the table, but Bridgewater’s long injury layoff and Darnold’s rookie status mean there’s more mystery elsewhere on the depth chart. Similar mysteries haven’t come to satisfying conclusions for the Jets in the past, but that’s not getting in the way of optimism at the position for the first time in some time for the AFC East club.
