Panthers owner Jerry Richardson typically is in the war room for the draft. He also visits with many of the players brought in for a visit. This year may be different with Richardson selling the team and under investigation by the NFL for alleged sexual and racial workplace misconduct. GM Marty Hurney said he's not sure what Richardson's plans are for the draft on Thursday night.

Panthers GM learned a lot watching the draft as a non-participant the last five years. One thing he assured, "I can tell you we're not going to be trading next year's first [round pick].'' Hurney did that a few times in the past and it didn't work out well.

Panthers GM Marty Hurney said he's still talking to Derek Anderson, who has been Cam Newton's backup since 2011. Also said he believes in the philosophy of taking a quarterback in the draft to develop for the future. Just don't expect that to be with an early pick.

Panthers general manager Marty Hurney hasn't ruled out trading up or down the draft. “In this draft at 24, we'll probably get calls either way,'' he said. “What we do will depend on how the draft has gone.''

The Panthers on Tuesday exercised the fifth-year option on linebacker Shaq Thompson. The team's 2015 first-round pick started a career-high 14 games and had a personal-best 75 tackles with six quarterback pressures and two sacks this past season. There never was a debate on whether the option should be used.

Sebastian Janikowski's $1.015 million base salary with the Seahawks is the minimum for a player who's been in the NFL as long as he has, but a $600,000 signing bonus seems like a sign the team feels good about his progress from the back injury that sidelined him in 2017.

Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks will carry a $3,740,520 cap hit in 2018 after signing a 5-year, $50 million contract extension last week. Kendricks' future cap hits are as follows: $6.6 million in 2019, $9.6 million in 2020, $10.6 million in 2021. Minnesota has $16.866 million left in cap space in 2018, according to ESPN's Roster Management System.

Giants open minicamp today. Expectation is that Odell Beckham Jr. will be there although not practicing as he continues to rehab, per sources. Ereck Flowers ... less optimism.

Jets daily draft nugget: No team has traded up into the top five more than the Jets — four times in the common-draft era (since 1967). None of the three previous picks (Mark Sanchez, Dewayne Robertson and Lam Jones) made a single Pro Bowl. The Jets also are part of another trend. Since 2013, only nine of the 12 first-round quarterbacks were taken with picks acquired via trade. The exceptions: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota and Blake Bortles.
