News leaked that Kahlil was planning to announce his retirement back in January, but had he had it his way, Kahlil would have walked away from the game without the fanfare of a season long farewell tour.
“Cause I’m not a make-it-about-me guy,” Kalil said, according to ESPN’s David Newton. “I thought I was asked off the record if this was the last one,” Kalil said about the leaked announcement, jokingly. “I did not make an announcement about it. … I’m not that kind of guy. I think it’s selfish to be that way.”
Despite public knowledge of his plans, Khalil is just going to put his head down and go to work.
“I did not make an announcement about it. … I’m not that kind of guy. I think it’s selfish to be that way.”
“I like the things we’re doing,” Kalil said. “But we need more reps. We need more and more reps.”
The Panthers will head into the new season with a new offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, and the work thus far is drawing positive reviews, even from Khalil who sees the impact Turner has had on quarterback Cam Newton.
“I’ve seen Cam grow every single season,” Kalil said. “Having Scotty [quarterbacks coach Scott Turner], having Norv working with him every day, for one, he’s been very excited about having some different perspective.
“Two, he’s been working on his craft. He’s got incredible work ethic. Just happy he’s on my team.”
Panthers Re-Sign Eric Reid
The Carolina Panthers have re-signed veteran safety Eric Reid to a three-year deal worth more than $22 million and could raise the total value of the deal to $24 million, according to NFL.com’s Mike Silver.
Reid, 27, was set to hit unrestricted free agency this offseason, but will not test the open market, opting to stay in Carolina.
Reid collected 71 tackles, five passes defensed, one interception, and one sack this season for Carolina.
Panthers’ Cam Newton Provides Update on Shoulder
Newton played with the injury all season, though the Panthers downplayed it’s significance.
“It’s good. It’s good,” Newton said during an interview with 680 The Fan in Atlanta, h/t ESPN.
“It’s better than I thought it would be. With so much going on throughout this season, I was in fear to see what actually was wrong.”
