Along with 34 days left until the Panthers season opener, that means it is time to evaluation Cameron Artis-Payne, and talk about exactly what he might contribute to the Carolina Panthers in 2019.
Weight: 215 lbs
Age: twenty-nine years
Experience: the fifth season
It seems like just yesterday inside my brain that I was sitting close to paying just a small amount of attention to the 3rd day of the 2015 NFL Write, and saw Cameron Artis-Payne removed from Auburn with the Panthers 5th circular selection. Amazingly, Cameron is now beginning his fifth NFL season and it is still with the Carolina Panthers on the one year contract to presumably become the primary backup to workhorse beginner Christian McCaffrey. Get you Panther Jerseys here.
Looking down the present depth chart, it is hard to suppose anyone else will really usurp him through that role. Jordan Scarlett is most likely going to be the third back and other home names like Reggie Bonnafon plus Elijah Holyfield will probably be on the outside searching in.
Cameron Artis-Payne remains a good enigma despite having been on the group for so long. He has made a couple of splash plays here and there and has furthermore made some boneheaded ones only for good measure. The Panthers should feel the same way, having given your pet just enough of a contract to hold on to his experience within the system yet opening the door for other opportunities to show themselves.
In the NFL, often there is another back available ready to end up being signed and take the spotlight. Simply look at what CJ Anderson do last year for the Los Angeles Rams whenever Todd Gurley got hurt. Ideally, for the Panthers, Christian McCaffrey will still be incredible in his workhorse role plus remain a man of steel.
