Carolina Panthers: 3 Emerging Weapons for Cam Newton This Season

Has Carolina finally found it's No. 2 receiver?

The Carolina Panthers offense has been Jekyll-and-Hyde, but weapons for Cam Newton are emerging.

It is still early in the 2012-2013 NFL season to accurately predict who will have a good season. Two games do not provide a lot of information, but a few Panthers on offense are showing potential.

The Panthers games against Tampa Bay and New Orleans were polar opposites of each other. Carolina was pass-happy against the Buccaneers, but they utilized the run to perfection against the Saints.

Despite the differences in offensive game plans, both games showed similarities in how Cam Newton was spreading the ball around. He showed preliminary signs of who his go-to targets will be. The good news is that, for once, Steve Smith is no longer the only target in the passing game.

If Newton's connection with these targets continues to grow, the Panthers will have an elite offense throughout the season.
