Top free agent targets for the Panthers
The Carolina Panthers lost their star pass rusher, Haason Reddick, in free agency. Nonetheless, the Panthers still exhibit young, hungry defensive lineman. The Panthers may not target edge rush help, but they could really benefit from more talent at many other positions on their roster. With that said, here are a few interesting free agents that would be logical fits for the Panthers squad.
- Cam Newton
I expect the Panthers to bring in a veteran QB and not draft a QB early in the 2022 NFL draft. Per, Yahoo Sports, the Panthers are open to bringing back Newton. I don’t believe Newton will return to being a Pro Bowl QB, but the 32-year-old QB can be a potential starting QB for a few more seasons in the NFL.
- Albert Wilson
It would be wise for the Panthers to ink an underrated WR3 for competition. Albert Wilson can be a 300+ yard WR and the new “Curtis Samuel” with excellent matchups for CAR. He is also 29 years old, so he’s not quite at the A.J. Green/Julio Jones stage of his career.
- Janoris Jenkins
The Panthers recently brought back CB Donte Jackson, but they could use more CB talent in the gruesome NFC South. Jackrabbit has 4 picks in the past two seasons and he would be an excellent value signing for the Panthers. He would be pivotal against the Bucs and Saints potent wide receivers.
- Kyle Rudolph
The Panthers team that struggled in the Deshaun Watson sweepstakes needs to get creative for playmaking ability. Darnold could benefit from the cheap, talented TE Kyle Rudolph, who can be an excellent big body threat for the Panthers future starting QB. Rudolph is 32 years old and he can be a quality TE2 in 2022 and beyond.
