The Carolina Panthers are set to open rookie minicamp this weekend and then begin preparations for OTAs later in the month. When the latter takes place, certain veterans will have to prove their worth before the season begins and quite possibly do the same throughout the season.
Carolina features a roster full of young talent and one-year deals with established veterans. There are a few players to keep an eye on as their level of play will dictate their future with the team either before or after the 2013 regular season.

Without further adieu, here are the veterans who have been put on notice this offseason.
