3 dream targets for the Carolina Panthers right now

Who is the best dream target for the Panthers?

By: Jake Rajala

The Carolina Panthers should still be aggressive in an NFC South division that witnessed Tom Brady return to the Buccaneers and two Lousiana natives (Tyrann Mathieu, Jarvis Landry) join the Saints. With that said, I’m going to untwine three dream targets for the Panthers right now.

Jimmy Garoppolo

I would love to see the Panthers grab Jimmy G in June or July. He is a sure-fire upgrade over Matt Corral and “good” Sam Darnold. He has been utterly clutch in big moments and he can absolutely utilize CMAC, Robbie Anderson, and D.J. Moore on a high level. For example, below is an unearthly throw by Jimmy G against the Saints team that Panthers nation hates with a passion.

Joe Haden

The Panthers impressively acquired Stephon Gilmore in 2021 and I’d love to see them notch another top-tier CB in 2022. Joe Haden can be a physical, man-to-man CB against the likes of Mike Evans and Michael Thomas. The former AFC North CB has expressed that he isn’t interested in retiring soon, as well. Perhaps the Panthers and their second-ranked cap space in the league can out-bid other teams for Haden.

Anthony Barr

The Panthers lost the versatile Haason Reddick this off-season and it may be wise for CAR to sign the athletic freak Anthony Barr. The former Vikings LB doesn’t carry the same pass-rushing talent as Reddick, but he can still excel against the pass (3 ints in 11 games) and the run (72 combined tackles) last season. The four-time Pro Bowl selection would be perfect in pass coverage against Alvin Kamara and Kyle Pitts in the NFC South.
