Adam Thielen Mocks The Panthers’ Facilities

Adam Thielen Mocks The Panthers’ Facilities

Adam Thielen signed a three-year contract with the Panthers back in 2023 and I think it’s pretty safe to say he’s not exactly enjoying his stay in Carolina. The Panthers announced a plan to renovate Bank of America Stadium and Thielen is thrilled about it. So much so that he made sure to let everyone know that the Panthers had the ‘worst’ facilities in the league and it’s not even debatable.

“I think they’re behind a little bit as far as facilities,” Thielen told Alex Zietlow of the Charlotte Observer. “We probably have the worst facilities in the NFL right now, and I don’t think there is anybody who would argue that. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. You gotta go play football, and you gotta go win games.

“So it’s nice to hear that, the commitment to us as players and the coaching staff, ‘Hey, you guys are putting the work in, and we’re going to commit and provide you guys with better facilities and really give you the resources to go out there and win.’ So it’s exciting.”

PFT also noted that the Panthers scored very low in the offseason report card too so what Thielen is saying has some validity to it.

“On the most recent NFLPA report card, the Panthers received a C+ on their locker room, a C+ on their training room, a B on their weight room, and owner David Tepper received a D.”

Carolina currently does not have an indoor facility. How one lets that happen in a humid AF South Carolina beats me. Thielen had some comments on that as well for those who are curious.

Thielen noted that’s “a little tough,” saying the team is “kind of making do with what we have as far as the locker room, and meeting rooms, and stuff like that.”

“I think they had plans in Rock Hill to build that facility, and then when that kind of fell through, they had to re-gameplan and figure it out,” Thielen said. “So again, it’s exciting to hear that they’re going to invest in the players and the organization, the staff. And I think everyone’s just excited to see that follow through and to get those resources to be at our best.”
