Panthers Don’t Want to Rush Newton Into Starting Job

Bucky Brooks of NFL.com reports he has heard from Panthers team officials that the team will not play Cam Newton extensively until he shows a firm grasp of the offense and they build a supporting cast that will enable him to have success as a starter.

They have some of those pieces in place with their strong offensive line, deep stable of running backs (Jonathan Stewart and possibly DeAngelo Williams) and an established No. 1 receiver in Steve Smith. They still need to find a quality second option and hope that tight end Jeremy Shockey can re-emerge as a legitimate threat over the middle.
