Panthers WR Shepard says he's more than a special teams guy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) New Panthers wide receiver Russell Shepard would love to a steal a page from Steve Smith's career playbook in Carolina.

Like Smith early on in his career, Shepard is out to shed the label of being "just a special teams guy" and emerge as a valuable receiving threat.

It's not that he's opposed to playing special teams, but he thinks he can do so much more. He may just have that opportunity this season in Carolina, where Smith played most of his career before retiring earlier this offseason.
