Panthers Kalil Says 'Hard Knocks' to Carolina

Carolina center Ryan Kalil alluded via Twitter that the HBO series Hard Knocks would be covering the Panthers’ training camp this summer.

Kalil wrote, “Reliable source telling me possible reality sports doc TV series coming to NC after today’s media presence covering Panther POTA’s.”

Could he possibly be referring to another “reality sports doc TV series”? Not likely.

The Panthers would be a compelling choice given the arrival of No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton, who was hardly a consensus selection as the best player (or even best quarterback) available. Newton is still relatively green experience-wise as a starting quarterback at such an elite level, so he’s bound to encounter growing pains.

The only big drawback about selecting the Panthers is that former All-Pro wide receiver Steve Smith is not expected to join the team this season, lowering the odds that Hard Knocks cameras might catch one Panther punching another Panther in the face.
