Jacoby Jones was almost a Panther

Jacoby Jones was almost a Panther 


Jones, a New Orleans native, visited Charlotte last spring on a free agent tour and was set to sign with the Panthers. But after his agent encouraged him to take his final visit to Baltimore, Jones signed with the Ravens and ended up in his hometown for his first Super Bowl.

Jones said he met with Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and former offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski during his visit, and came away impressed.

“It was great,” Jones said Wednesday. “I was like, 'Man, I'm leaning this way.'”

Jones said the Panthers' offer was similar to the two-year, $7 million deal he received from the Ravens


Jones said he would have been the Panthers' No. 3 wideout, but wasn't sure he would get to return both kicks and punts.

“They were kind of decided of Brandon LaFell” as the second wideout, Jones said. “He played pretty well. They had a returner (Kealoha Pilares). And they had a guy (Joe Adams) they drafted. I was looking at that, too.”

About the Ravens, Jacoby said: “When I walked in the locker room, I was done. I was like, ‘I’m signing,’ ” Jones said. “How
these guys act to each other, it was like a family.”

Who actually creates the locker room atmosphere, the players themselves, the coach, or the coach/GM who selects the players? I generally think that things start at the top with the coach, how he treats players, and what he expects from players. How can the Panthers develop a great locker room atmosphere?
