Panthers WR Corey Brown has offseason shoulder surgery

The Carolina Panthers went 15-1 last season and fell short of winning the Super Bowl with a 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos. They are looking to build off of that momentum and compete next year and they should have wide receiver Corey Brown back in the mix.

Linebacker Luke Kuechly revealed to The Charlotte Observer‘s Joseph Person at the Wells Fargo Tournament that Brown and tight end Scott Simonson both had shoulder procedures done this offseason. Both of them are expected to be healthy and ready for training camp.

Last season, Corey Brown played a big role for the Panthers after Kelvin Benjamin went down with a torn ACL. He recorded 447 yards and four touchdowns.

He is expected to play an even bigger role with Jerricho Cotchery gone. If he plays to his full abilities and Benjamin has a season like his first in the NFL, the Panthers could end up dominating in the NFL once again.
