The Panthers seem to be in the market for a quarterback, so which should they trade for?

With the Carolina Panthers failing to convert any fourth quarter comebacks despite numerous close losses, the team is apparently exploring outside options at the quarterback position. A couple of scintillating trade possibilities have come out in recent weeks. Franchise quarterbacks don’t grow on trees, but two members of that illustrious group (Deshaun Watson and...

Celebrating the Panthers four promising rookie undrafted free agents

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Despite going undrafted, Carolina found a couple of rookies who not only made the roster but also made some meaningful contributions. 

As Panthers fans we tend to get overly emotional about the performance of the rookies Carolina selects in the NFL Draft. This is mainly because the Panthers invested an asset in the form of a draft pick to get that player on the roster. If the player doesn’t live up to his draft position then not only does it hurt Carolina’s...

Mocking with B-Dub 2.0: Getting our quarterback and rebuilding the offensive line

Photo by Sam Wasson/Getty Images

The Panthers get their quarterback and re-stock the offensive line in the second edition of my mock draft.

The NFL Draft is a few months away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate who we think (or hope) the Panthers will draft when it’s time to make their selections. I’ve decided to join in on the fun this year and — against my better judgment — do a series of mock drafts to hopefully foster discussion about the Panthers’ needs and how they...

Panthers GM Scott Fitterer doesn't commit to Teddy Bridgewater

In his introductory news conference, the new GM played things close to the vest and generally stayed away from discussing specific players.

Panthers offered contract to Dwayne Haskins

Most likely, both offers were one-year, minimum-salary proposals, so Haskins probably chose the Steelers over the Panthers based on learning opportunity and the incumbent starters for both clubs.

Take a brief scan of the Panthers six heaviest contracts for the coming year.

With reports leaking out that the NFL Salary Cap might ‘only’ drop to $180 Million in 2022, the Carolina Panthers have some big decisions to make about their future. Each year’s cap is based on league earnings from the past year. 2020 obviously deflated those earnings as most teams had little to no revenue to speak of from ticket, concessions, and in-stadium merchandise...

What that Bear did: Offensive line overview

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The unit got off to a great start in 2020, but they quickly fell apart as the left tackle spot repeatedly succumbed to injuries.

Well the 2020 season is in the books, and although the Panthers arguably exceeded pre-season expectations, there were certainly some clear deficiencies the team needs to address to become a playoff caliber squad again. While the team is probably a quarterback away from a winning record, there is still a foundation on the offensive line...
