Panthers Sign Kuechly; Open Minicamp Today

Charlotte – On May 10, the Carolina Panthers reached an agreement with first-round draft choice Luke Kuechly on the eve of the team’s rookie minicamp.

Kuechly, the former Boston College linebacker who is the NCAA’s all-time leading tackler, agreed to a four-year contract worth $12.58 million, all of it guaranteed, according to a league source.  He was the ninth overall pick in last month’s draft, and at this time is the highest draft pick to agree to terms.

A 6-3, 242-pound native of Cincinnati, Kuechly (above) averaged 15.9 tackles last season and 14.0 tackles over his three-year career, both NCAA records.

The Panthers will have 58 players in town this weekend for the rookie minicamp.  The camp includes their 7 draft picks, 12 undrafted free agents, 7 players under contract with less than one year of NFL service time, and 32 players trying out.

Here are the players who will be in Charlotte this weekend.
