FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Patriots and Panthers opened two days of joint practices Tuesday both hoping to see progress on the offensive side of the ball.
Carolina is trying to sort out its situation at quarterback after bringing in Baker Mayfield to compete alongside Sam Darnold. New England is still working through tweaks it's made since former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels left in the offseason for Las Vegas.
Both teams had their moments during the two-hour session. Patriots receiver DeVante Parker continued to be a magnet for catching deep passes. And despite being under relentless pressure from the Patriots defense for a good portion of the day, Mayfield and Darnold both successfully guided the team down the field during hurry-up situations.
