Panthers rookie wide receiver got dropped off by his mum on the first day of training camp

While some athletes choose to show up to their respective first days of training camp in flashy cars or even by horse, Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Curtis Samuel hitched a ride with his mum.

As the Panthers arrived for their first day of camp at Wofford College, South Carolina, Samuel got dropped off by his mum.

As Samuel walked to the dorms, his mum proudly watched.

Much of the Panthers media enjoyed the sight.

Perhaps Samuel may receive some ridicule from his teammates, but sometimes it’s worth it to make mum happy.
