Ricky Proehl has a lot of NFL contacts. That happens when you were in the league for 16 years and played for six different teams. Now the Panthers wide receivers coach is looking at calling in a favor in order to shape the team's core.
Trying to get the greatest show on turf to training camp to work with our receivers. How awesome would that be . #88,#80,#81— Ricky Proehl (@RickyProehl) May 23, 2014
From a football perspective there's no downside. Proehl is the receivers coach, so nobody is going to undermine his ability to coach the Panthers new receivers and when you have a cast the likes of him, Holt and Bruce it's simply more wealth to share around.
The team is in dire need of more veteran leadership at the receiver position after Steve Smith was released and if the Greatest Show on Turf can help fill that void in Spartanburg it would be a great thing. Personally I'm just hoping we get to see Cam Newton throwing some passes to three guys who were iron men of the NFL.
