Frank Reich: Andy Dalton will be with first team, but Bryce Young will likely get more reps

First overall pick Bryce Young’s first practice work with the Panthers came at their rookie minicamp over the weekend and he was the No. 1 quarterback on the field for that work.

That will not be the case the next time that Young hits the practice field, however. Head coach Frank Reich said this weekend that Andy Dalton will remain the No. 1 quarterback when the full squad works together, although he noted that the plan is for the rookie to wind up taking more reps than the veteran over the course of the team’s workouts.

“When he’s ready, when it’s best for the team, that’s when we’ll look to make the transition,” Reich said, via Joseph Person of “But when we come back out Monday, Andy will be taking reps with the ones. Bryce will be with the twos. But Bryce is gonna get a lot of reps. He’ll likely even get a few more than Andy just as the new guy.”

Reich said that Young “looked the part in every way” during the minicamp and it probably won’t be long before he gets bumped up to the top spot on the depth chart if that continues to be that way in full practices this spring and summer.

  1. Andy is just good enough to keep a rookie looking over their shoulders whenever they do rookie things and just bad enough to make sure the rookie gets on the field.

  2. Yeah let’s get shorty those reps he’ll need em for the practice squad

  3. NFL coaches continue to be the dumbest people on earth. Get Young ready. He should practice with the ones. Everybody knows that this season is to get him reps. They’re not going to the playoffs.

  4. So glad Dalton is gone from New Orleans. The sooner he sucks in Carolina, the better opportunity for Bryce to send him to retirement.
