Written by waploaded

The Panthers are one of the few teams to host a quarterback competition during training camp as the pre-2018 draft saw Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold busy work, vying for the top job. However, coach Matt Roulette is in no hurry to be named the Week 1 starter.

talking to journalists after the saturday Roulette explained that he would never rush to make a “big decision” in any situation. He shared that he doesn’t envision naming a starting quarterback until after the Panthers’ second preseason game against the Patriots on August 19.

“I’m not going to put a timetable on the quarterback position until we’re back from Patriots week,” Roulette said. “Patriots Week is a true litmus test for us. We’re going against the other team, we’re practicing… I think it will really show us where the guys are.”
