Yesterday afternoon, the Carolina Panthers announced that they will hold a joint practice with the Tennessee Titans on August 16th and 17th at Saint Thomas Sports Park in Nashville, Tennessee, ahead of their preseason match-up on Saturday, August 19th at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. Both practices will be open to the public.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera says that his team is looking forward to getting much constructive work as possible. “It’s a chance for the guys to change who they’re competing against; it can get a little stale in training camp. We can control the tempo, and the quarterbacks can get different looks and see different things.” Rivera said.
The last time the Panthers held a joint practice was back in 2015, when the Miami Dolphins paid a visit to Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina ahead of their preseason game at Bank of America Stadium, and Rivera says having another joint practice session is a great way for his team to build the momentum entering the 2017 season in Carolina. “Coming off the Super Bowl and that short off-season, we thought it might be too much to do it in 2016, but we definitely wanted to do it again this year.”
The Carolina Panthers will begin their 23rd consecutive year of training camp at Wofford College on Wednesday, July 26th and it will last until Sunday, August 13th, with the full training camp schedule to be released at a later date in the upcoming weeks.
