Article from the panthers website that had a couple of interesting tidbits including this quote from Beast talking about Kuechly:: "He kind of stays in his lane because he's a rookie, but we've opened the door and said, 'Hey, you're one of us,'" Beason said. "We don't treat him like a rookie, and we don't expect him to play like a rookie, either." Good to see he's well on his way to earning the respect of his fellow LBs as well as the coaches. Another interesting bit was about Hardy having cut off his dreads and taking a more serious approach to his profession: "I want to be noted for being a good football player and being an educated man and a good guy instead of just a guy with dreads who does dumb stuff," Hardy said. "It's a business move, just trying to be more professional, trying to show everybody that I'm serious about coming with my work hat on. " I'm glad to see he's taking it serious like DA does.
