The Panthers announced Thursday they signed five of their eight draft choices.
Norton, who played at Miami, was the 242nd overall pick. In his three seasons as a Hurricane, Norton compiled 84 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and five sacks.
Carolina’s seven undrafted rookies 鈥?Womens Steve Larmer Jersey quarterback Kyle Allen, running back Reggie Bonnafon, guard Kyle Bosch, linebacker Chris Frey, guard Taylor Hearn, guard Brendan Mahon and defensive tackle Tracy Sprinkle 鈥?also signed contracts Thursday.
Elite Mens Troy Hill Jersey Pederson said that Wentz is making progress each day, but added that it can be a fine line when it comes to doing too much too soon as a result. For now, the plan is to just continue the current process for as long as it takes for Wentz to make it all the way back.
I’m not going to rush him out there. I’m not going to expose him, Pederson said, via ESPN.com. He’ll be ready when he’s ready, and when we feel he’s ready. Right now, we’re encouraged with the progress he’s making.
Wentz has not been cleared to do anything in practice beyond rehab work and throwing the ball, something that is unlikely to change until training camp. His level of participation as August unfolds will give the best idea about his odds of being in the lineup against the Falcons on September 6.
Should Matt Patricia have volunteered information about his past indictment?

This one’s well-known but just as strange: Then Saints coach Mike Ditka traded his entire 1999 draft (and his first and third picks in the 2000 draft) for Texas running back Ricky Williams. The Saints gave away eight picks in total, including two first rounders, to move up from the No. 12 spot to No. 5.
Ditka wasn’t wrong about the potential in Williams, who ended up rushing for over 10,000 yards in his career. But he accomplished most of that in Miami after lasting just three years in New Orleans.
