Potential Panthers receiver on Fire

As the Panthers continue to survey the landscape of available wide receivers, they might already have a sleeper.

It’s nothing they can count on for immediate help, but Chris Samp, who was allocated by the Panthers to NFL Europe, had an impressive first game. Playing for the Rhein Fire, Samp threw a 45-yard touchdown pass on the first offensive snap against Frankfurt. He also had a 16-yard reception.

Samp, 6-foot-3 and 224 pounds, played at Winona State and could get a long look in training camp if he continues to produce in Europe.

Two other players under contract with the Panthers had good first weeks of the NFL Europe season. Linebacker David Bergeron, who plays for Cologne, had an interception and defensive tackle Tony Brown, who plays for Amsterdam had four tackles.

Which reminds me... I spotted Dameyune Craig last week working as a wax boy at that carwash on Albemarle across from the mall. He was like Jesus in NFL Europe!
