The Carolina Panthers had a wild and crazy offseason. It started with the selection of Cam Newton with the first overall pick this past April and concluded after the first wave of free agency.
Carolina was the most active team throughout free agency next to the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles spent a boatload of money bringing in free agents from outside the organization, whereas the Panthers spent a boatload of money retaining their own players.
Panthers' owner Jerry Richardson was criticized last year for being frugal and not spending money, but he responded in a big way this year.
Let's take a closer look at the moves the Panthers made this offseason now that we are well into the season.
