SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- For Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel, you're never too old to get a ride from your mom to work.

The 20-year-old speedster arrived at the Panthers training camp Tuesday with his mother Nicole watching him from the parking lot.

Samuel reportedly said his mom needed the car after his plans to arrive at Wofford University with fellow rookie Christian McCaffrey didn't work out as expected.

New York Giants defensive back Eli Apple made headlines last year after his mother Annie dropped him off to OTA and training camp.
