beat Pittsburgh

The Panthers are trying to give quarterback Cam Newton more pieces to work with on offense.

Carolina has agreed to terms with free agent slot wide receiver Jarius Wright on a three-year deal [url=]Stephen Anderson Jersey[/url] , a person familiar with the situation said Monday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Panthers have not announced the move.

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately known.

The Panthers ranked 28th in the league in passing last season.

The 28-year-old Wright has spent all six NFL seasons with the Vikings and is familiar with Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner, having worked under him for more than two seasons in Minnesota.

The former fourth-round pick was released by the Vikings last week.

The 5-foot-10, 191-pound Wright had 18 receptions for 198 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. His most productive season came in 2014 [url=]Tarik Cohen Jersey[/url] , when he caught 42 passes for 588 yards and two touchdowns.

Earlier this offseason, the Panthers traded cornerback Daryl Worley to Philadelphia for wide receiver Torrey Smith giving them a new starter opposite No. 1 receiver Devin Funchess.

Wright has primarily worked in the slot in the past. He has 153 catches for 2,039 yards and 10 touchdowns during his career with Minnesota.

The Panthers are still in the market for a cornerback after a deal fell through for free agent Bashaud Breeland last week. Breeland had agreed to terms on a contract with Carolina but later failed a physical.


Matt Patricia didn’t look pleased at the end of the first half [url=]Curtis Samuel Jersey[/url] , and who can blame him?

The Lions kicked field goals on its first two drives after reaching the Tampa Bay 6-yard line and 8-yard line. His defense gave up a touchdown to the Bucs’ first-team offense and then watched Jameis Winston throw a touchdown for the Bucs in the second quarter.

But the worst offense for the Lions came on the final play of the first half.

The Lions lined up for a 62-yard field goal with seven seconds remaining in the half. Matt Prater‘s kick came up short, and Adam Humphries caught it in the back of the end zone and made like Auburn’s Chris Davis.

Humphries went 109 yards to the other end zone for a touchdown.

It’s a situation the Bucs worked on at the end of an Aug. 11 practice, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

“As we know from the college game [url=]Jose Altuve Jersey[/url] , that could be a season-changing play,” Bucs coach Dirk Koetter told the newspaper, referencing the famous “Kick Six” play in the 2013 Alabama-Auburn game [url=]Justin Blackmon Jersey[/url] , where Davis returned a missed field goal 109 yards with no time remaining. “That’s just one of the many things that you’ve got to cover in training camp.”
