Marlowe (hamstring) participated in the entirety of the Panthers' OTAs, Bryan Strickland of the team's official site reports. "This is the first time I actually put on a helmet since September," Marlowe said. "But adversity can be key -- you just have to bounce back and keep pushing. I'm so happy to be out here healthy and performing on the field."
Watson impressed in offseason practices but still has a lot of ground to gain in the team's quarterback competition, NFL.com's Max Meyer reports. "We put a lot on [Watson's] plate during the spring, and he handled it very well," coach Bill O'Brien said. "He made mistakes, and he corrected them. You don't see him make the same mistake twice. He can do a lot of things. He can operate our running game and in our passing game. He's got a lot of athleticism. I don't think we'll have to limit him. Training camp and preseason games will be a big test."
Robinson could see increased playing time in 2017, Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press reports. "I think he's really doing some good things. He is again, another big, strong, powerful man who has got good bend. So, he does a lot of things inside in the run game,'' defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said. "He's going to be really good. Like always, we think we've got to just continue to try to accelerate him in the pass game and work on his pass rush so that he can be a three-down player for us and give us some inside pass rush."
Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said Williams is "a ton, ton better" so far this offseason compared to Williams' rookie year, Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press reports."[Williams is] much more urgent in terms of how he's attacking the game, really is seeing and understands the scheme better, so he's reacting faster and he's a big man that can run,'' Austin said. "So, he's really done some good things throughout this offseason, really like where he's going right now."
