Panthers’ Ryan Kalil Enjoying Last Training Camp

Published

on

Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kahlil is taking in every moment of his final season, including training camp, a camp he came away impressed and feeling positive about.

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.”

Searcy missed 8 games of the 2018 season due to a pair of concussions he suffered back in September, which proved to effectively end his season.
