School's out for Summer, and school's out forever for Carolina Panthers' third round pick Sione Fua who chose to wait until finals and get his degree in 'Science, Technology and Society' before switching coasts and join players in the Private workouts they have been holding. According to his Twitter:
On the plane headed to north Carolina!
This make Fua the 55th player to participate in the private workouts that have been going for the last seven days. The Panthers intend to have nine workouts, the final of which on Wednesday will be open to the media and easily the most illuminating for fans who are desperate to hear how #1 overall pick Cam Newton is looking, along with the rest of the rookies.
Ron Rivera is already heaping praise on his players telling the AP's Mike Cranston he's "very proud" of the players for organizing the workout, in turn saying the turnout is "outstanding". For a disciplinarian like Rivera it's easy to see why he would be so pleased with the players taking the initiative during their off-season to begin work.
