Panthers on the Prowl


Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson said he was going to be “very aggressive” in free agency. He wasn’t just whistlin’ Dixie.

After resigning his two most-prized free agents — DE Charles Johnson and RB DeAngelo Williams — Richardson has opened the piggy bank to re-sign LBs Thomas Davis and James Anderson (with promises to retain all-world LB Jon Beason, as well), and to add blocking TE Ben Hartsock (joining pass-catching TE Jeremy Shockey) as well as K Olindo Mare (to a laughably lucrative four-year, $12 million contract).

And he still has to get No. 1 pick Cam Newton under contract.

Will the spending spree result in more than two regular-season wins?
