Curtis Samuel's Mom Drops Him Off at Panthers Training Camp

Rookies get rapidly thrown into adulthood when starting their NFL careers. It's easy to forget how young they are.

Wide receiver Curtis Samuel, drafted by the Carolina Panthers in the second round, will turn 21 in August. There's nothing wrong with getting a lift to training camp as a neophyte yet to receive a huge payday.

Samuel's mom, as seen in the background of NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon's video, dropped him off at Tuesday morning's practice. 

He's not the first Ohio State newcomer to have a proud parent see him off into the real world. Eli Apple's mother, Annie, narrated his first day at New York Giants training camp on Twitter last year.

Nobody would give a second thought to parents giving their kid a ride to a college campus. Besides, the speedy Samuel can soon buy his own vehicle if he becomes a major playmaker in Carolina's offense.
