2024 NFL Offseason: Carolina Panthers

Carolina Panthers (Last Year: 2-15)

Season Summary:
When the Panthers traded up to No. 1 in the 2023 NFL Draft, the coaches believed they were getting C.J. Stroud. The owner had a different plan. That plan has failed thus far, as Bryce Young endured a horrific rookie campaign. The Panthers can still salvage him, but they need to give him a much better supporting cast with resources they don’t possess.

Offseason Moves:
  • Steelers acquire WR Diontae Johnson from Panthers for Donte Jackson
  • Giants acquire DE/OLB Brian Burns from Panthers for 2024 2nd- and 5th-round picks

    Team Needs:
    1. Two Wide Receivers: Bryce Young had no one to throw to last year, aside from Adam Thielen, who is nearing the end of his career. Two receivers are needed, including one who can stretch the field. Traded for Diontae Johnson

    2. Two Guards: Pass protection was a huge problem as well. Upgrades are needed at both guard spots. Signed Damien Lewis and Robert Hunt

    3. Defensive Tackle: Carolina needs a run-stuffing presence in order to finally overcome its weakness against the rush. Signed A’Shawn Robinson

    4. Tight End: Hayden Hurst was a bust of a free agent signing, so this is another area the Panthers must address.

    5. Edge Rusher: Brian Burns was likely to be franchised or re-signed, but he was traded. Signed D.J. Wonnum, Jadeveon Clowney and K’Lavon Chaisson

    6. Linebacker: Re-signing Frankie Luvu is a priority as well. Signed Josey Jewell

    7. Quarterback: Vetern competition is needed to challenge Young, who was horrible as a rookie.

    8. Running Back: Chuba Hubbard took over for the ineffective Miles Sanders, but it’s not like he was a terrific replacement.

    9. Cornerback Depth: The Panthers have some depth issues at cornerback, given the number of free agents they have at the position. Signed Dane Jackson
