NFL Commissioner Goodell to visit Panthers camp

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is starting his summer tour at Carolina.

The Panthers said Monday that Goodell would begin his tour of football camps with visit to Wofford College on Wednesday. Goodell plans to hold a question-and-answer session with fans before watching the team workout later that evening.

The NFL and its players recently completed a 10-year collective bargaining agreement. Goodell worked closely during negotiations with Carolina owner Jerry Richardson, who was co-chairman of the league's 10-owner executive committee.

It won't be the first time Goodell's taken questions from Panther fans. He held a teleconference with fans who own public seat licenses at Bank of America Stadium. Goodell also visited Fort Bragg, N.C., with Panthers coach Ron Rivera in June.
