Cam Newton's health casts biggest shadow on Panthers' offseason
Whomever Carolina hires to replace coach Ron Rivera will need to pick a quarterback. Newton had surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury in his foot that ended his season in Week 2 and there are no guarantees the first pick of the 2011 draft will be back for the final year of his contract.

Redskins officially name Ron Rivera coach, make Jack Del Rio DC
Rivera, who was fired by the Panthers on Dec. 3 with a 5-7 record, was viewed as a strong candidate for any opening. Rivera also was Chicago's defensive coordinator in 2006 when the Bears reached the Super Bowl. He served in the same role from 2008 to 2010 with the San Diego Chargers. Del Rio's defenses finished No. 2 overall in 2002 and 2012, and third in 2014. Del Rio was head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2003 to 2011 and the Oakland Raiders from 2015 to 2017.

NFL Power Rankings: 1-32 poll, plus each team's most notable 2010s moment
The NFL Power Rankings are not only ending for this season, but they are ending for the 2010s as well. A lot has happened in the league over the past 10 years, but some things mattered more than others.

No.28: Carolina

Most notable 2010s event: Jerry Richardson selling the team, May 22, 2018
With allegations of sexual and racial misconduct, the team founder was left with little choice but to sell the team he created in 1995 and disappear from the NFL with a blemish that will forever follow his name. Since new owner David Tepper has taken over the Panthers, the team has gone a collective 1-15 in the second halves of the past two seasons, leading to the firing of coach Ron Rivera and what ultimately will be a complete overhaul of the football side.

Sources: Baylor's Matt Rhule to be Panthers' next coach, gets 7-year, $60 million deal
Rhule has a reputation for turning programs around. In his third season at Temple, the Owls went 10-2 during the regular season. A year later, he led the program to its first conference championship since 1967. Baylor went 11-3 this past season, two years after going 1-11 in Rhule's first season for the Big 12 program. The program had been dealing with a sexual assault scandal that cost coach Art Briles his job in 2016.

Panther's Efe Obada signs one-year extension
Obada, who has spent two seasons in the NFL, was the first player through the league's International Player Pathway Program to make a 53-man roster. The defensive lineman previously played for semi-professional England-based London Warriors before signing for the Panthers in 2017.

How 'the process' made Panthers coach Matt Rhule a master rebuilder
Owner David Tepper hopes that process will translate into success on the NFL level as the 44-year-old Rhule tries to rebuild a team that has one winning season since reaching Super Bowl 50 in 2015. Temple went 2-10 in Rhule’s first season, and then won 10 games in Years 3 and 4. Baylor went 1-11 in Rhule’s first season, and then 11-1 with a trip to the Big 12 championship game and Sugar Bowl this past season, his third.


Former Panthers DE Julius Peppers has been selected to the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. Peppers finished his career ranked fourth on the NFL's all-time sack list with 159.5 and is considered a sure-fire first-ballot selection for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is Carolina's all-time sack leader with 97.
