Diontae Johnson, the new wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers, had a surprising start at a welcome dinner when he didn’t realize that Dave Canales was the team’s head coach. Johnson impressed during the Panthers’ OTA practices, showcasing his skills in getting open and his ability to read the field. Despite his successes in Pittsburgh, Johnson fell out of favor last season. In an interview, Johnson discussed his perception, his trade to Carolina, and his motivation to prove himself.
