Those have to go somewhere.
tolbert and gary barnidge.
see a slight upward tick in targets, but it won't be much.
tolbert and barnidge factor to play large roles in the offense. panthers will continue to run 2 TE sets about as much as last year and barnidge has a lot of talent so he'll get some, but not as much as shockey last year. tolbert, though, is going to be the big thief here. they have already started lining him up as a WR so you can count on him being a sneaky target that cam goes to somewhat frequently and who they use in a variety of ways.
fwiw, i do see olsen getting into the endzone more and i do see him getting more receptions per target just because of cam improving as a passer. i just don't see him getting any more targets than last year.
