CHARLOTTE, N.C. Former University of South Carolina wide receiver Damiere Byrds NFL debut came a little later than expected.
Byrd was promoted to the http://www.armacan.com/captain-munnerlyn-jersey-c-1_35.html Carolina Panthersactive roster after nearly two seasons on the practice squad when wide receiver Devin Funchess was placed on injured reserve at the end of last season. He finally made his NFL debut in the Panthers2016 season finale against Tampa Bay, catching one pass for 16 yards and a returning a kickoff for 31 yards.
Thats always a big milestone for anybody. It was a good experience to be able to be out there for that last game and be able to carry that experience over,Byrd said following Tuesdays mini-camp practice.
Head coach Ron Rivera saw potential in Byrd in his debut, and praised his speed and knowledge.
With that kind of speed, if he can hit a seam at the right time he can make a big play,said Rivera. Damieres also a very smart football player. The young man knows pretty much all the receiver positions, so hes a guy thats earned the opportunity to be around here and compete for a job.
Despite the fact that Byrd is only going into http://www.cinemakolik.com/captain-munnerlyn-jersey-c-1_35.html his third season in the NFL, he is one of the older wide receivers on the Panthersrelatively young offensive corps. But Byrd has still found mentors in fellow receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Brenton Bersin.
Its kind of weird. In our room the oldest players are Kelvin and Brenton Bersin,said Byrd. Kelvins all but a year ahead of us, so its not really as much older guys,but guys that have played already that really kind of guide us in.
Byrd is looking to capitalize on the opportunity to play for a team that isnt too far from where he spent his college days.
Theres a lot of Gamecock fans in Charlotte. A lot of familiar faces that I know, so its always a big deal to be able to play around them, he said.
Byrd not only faces new competition given the teams recent signings, but also is coming off of offseason surgery on a torn lateral Ryan Kalil Youth Jersey meniscus in his left knee.
But the former USC track and field athlete said the surgery hasnt slowed him down one bit. He said hes lucky to have had the surgery so early in the offseason, which gives him ample time to recover before the start of training camp in July.
Im really using these OTAs to get my stride back,said Byrd.
Byrd held the title of being the fastest player on the USC football team during his senior year. But his experience as a track athlete doesnt always work in his favor. Like many guys with similar backgrounds trying to make it in the NFL, he is still trying to prove that he is more than just a speed guy.
Its always been that way for me growing up,he said.
But thats not the only chip on his shoulder. Byrd went undrafted, and is only 5-feet, 9-inches tall. He said hes got a lot to prove, and is ready to prove it.
Byrd said that he is willing to take on Greg Olsen Youth Jersey any role to make the Panthers53-man roster, whether its on offense or special teams.
Whatever I have to do, Im going to do it,he said.
