Panthers add more offense; draft WR Samuel, OT Moton

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) General manager Dave Gettleman is doing everything he can to get Cam Newton back to playing at an MVP level - and the Panthers back to the Super Bowl.

Carolina selected speedy slot receiver Curtis Samuel from Ohio State in the second round Friday night, one day after taking Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey with the No. 8 overall pick. That gives Newton two explosive weapons to work with on offense after the Panthers followed up an NFC championship season in 2015 by going 6-10 last year.

"We want to get the ball out of Cam's hands and into playmaker's hands," Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. "The first two guys we drafted are explosive players. These are guys that can take the ball and go the distance anytime they have it in their hands. That's what is exciting about these guys."
