The 2015 NFL MVP made his preseason debut Thursday in Jacksonville, leading a 10-play, 75-yard touchdown drive in his only series.

Newton threw just two passes on the drive, completing each for 21 yards. His second completion was a 9-yard touchdown to Kelvin Benjamin to give Carolina a 7-0 lead.

The Panthers have been cautious with Newton since he underwent surgery on his right shoulder in March to repair a partially torn rotator cuff. He sat out the first two preseason games before Thursday’s short night of work.

The thing that bothers me about this whole situation is the fact that he is going to all these camps and nobody seems to think he stands a chance of being No. 1. This is a young player who almost carried a team to a championship, to a Super Bowl — but I was a Ravens fan. … Somebody needs to give this young man a chance.

Kaepernick became a polarizing figure last season, when he kneeled for the national anthem in protest of racial discrimination and police brutality. He entered free agency in the offseason but still has not been signed.

But the question of which players will be standing and which will be kneeling before this season’s opener — and the rest of the regular season — is taking on added importance.

Imagine the reaction if white stars like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski of the Patriots, or Alex Smith and Travis Kelce of the Chiefs, support Kaepernick in front of millions of TV viewers. Although Kaepernick is still out of a job, his movement has been picking up steam.

Bills’ LeSean McCoy: Colin Kaepernick’s play doesn’t outweigh the distraction

Bills running back LeSean McCoy said he doesn’t believe Colin Kaepernick’s performance is good enough to outweigh the distraction that comes with his being on an NFL roster.

Limited Mens Dan Hampton Jersey It’s a lot more than just he’s not on the team because he doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem, McCoy said Thursday (via ESPN). That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. That chaos that comes along with it, it’s a lot.

If Kramer is elected to the Hall by the full selection committee prior to Super Bowl LII, he will be the 25th Packers player inducted in Canton and 12th from Green Bay’s championship teams of the 1960s. Kramer was named to the league’s 50th Anniversary team and is the only member of that group not already in the Hall of Fame.

Brazile was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1975 after the Oilers selected the former Jackson State linebacker with the sixth overall pick of the 1975 NFL Draft. He made the Pro Bowl every year from 1976-82 and was named to the 1970s all-decade team.

During a 10-year career, the now-64-year-old Brazile never missed a game and retired with 13 interceptions and 11 sacks over his final three seasons, when sacks became an official stat in 1982.

I don’t know what to say, Brazile told the Houston Chronicle after getting the call from Hall of Fame president David Baker. I’m speechless. I’m so happy, I’m just floating. It’s such an honor, a blessing. I can’t believe it after all these years. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Kramer and Brazile must now receive at least 80 percent of the vote from the full selection committee, which will meet to vote the weekend before the Super Bowl.
