The Carolina Panthers want to keep the activities of their player-organized workout secret.
According to the Associated Press, Panthers players gathered this morning at Charlotte Christian High School to work out, but in order to keep the media away, they hired a police officer to stop reporters at the entrance.
Some players have welcomed media coverage of their workouts, and some have boasted that their teams are ahead of the pack because they’re doing full-team practices while the rest of the NFL is locked out. But the Panthers apparently think secrecy is the best way to go.
Because of the restricted access for media, there’s no word yet on who attended the workouts. Cam Newton was expected to be there for at least some of the workouts, which the players plan to conduct for the next two weeks.
