As expected, Cam Newton (ankle) isn't fully participating in OTA's, but he is already throwing on the side, and coach Ron Rivera didn't dismiss the possibility that Newton could be further involved at minicamp in three weeks.
Newton wasn't expected to participate in OTAs in the first place, so this shouldn't be much of a surprise. He'll continue to work his way back but is still probably a month away from participating in full. He is expected to be fully healthy when training camp opens and should be under center for the Panthers Week 1 match-up.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Korean slugger Byung-ho Park is reportedly traveling to Minnesota to talk with the Twins.
With a $12.85M winning bid, the Twins now have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Park and his agent. If they don't, they will be refunded the money and Park will return to the KBO. The Korean slugger batted .343/.436/.714 with 53 home runs last season for the Nexen Heroes and hit 52 the year before. The KBO is notoriously hitter-friendly, so take those numbers with a grain of salt. He should still be able to hit for power, but given the dimensions of Target Field, 25 home runs is more of a realistic expectation. Analysis: Howard Bender
