Panthers players were eager to arrive at training camp in Spartanburg, S.C., on Tuesday. For one player in particular, perhaps too eager.
“Hey, T-Mo (Taylor Moton), I might need to borrow some of that (money),” Perryman said walking to the dorms. “ … I got a ticket coming up here.”
Offensive tackle Moton signed a five-year deal with the Panthers worth $85 million earlier this month.
Perryman, a linebacker who spent the previous six seasons with the Chargers, said he was going 91 mph on Interstate 85 when police clocked him, resulting in a $350 fine and six points on his driver license. He showed the ticket to reporters as proof. The maximum speed limit on interstates in South Carolina is 70 mph.
The Carolina Panthers begin training camp Wednesday. The team is back in Spartanburg this season after having training camp at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Panthers training camp is open for fans to attend and admission is free.
