  Panthers | Carolina to look at Justin Fields    Tue Apr 13, 08:29 PM

Ohio State QB Justin Fields will have representatives of the Carolina Panthers watching his pro day Wednesday, April 14, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Just because they traded for Sam Darnold it doesn't mean the Panthers won't still look at these rookie quarterbacks. At least, that's what they want other teams to think in case someone slides to them at the no.8 overall pick.

  Panthers | Interest high in Teddy Bridgewater    Thu Apr 8, 01:28 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater has a a contract that isn't trade friendly, but he could be willing to take a pay cut as multiple teams are interested in the veteran quarterback, according to an NFL Network report Thursday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater could be a bridge quarterback for a team in need or a team that selects a young passer. Or a team like the Broncos could bring him in for veteran competition. One thing is clear, Bridgwater is not getting moved without restructuring his deal...or the Panthers could pay part of his contract to get rid of him.

  Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater allowed to look around    Tue Apr 6, 09:20 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater has been given permission to seek a trade to another team, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. In fact, this was the plan for the Panthers - although they originally wanted to trade for Deshaun Watson instead of Sam Darnold. Now, Darnold is going to be the starter and Bridgewater will be playing somewhere else. A team like the Broncos could bring him in to compete with last year's starter Drew Lock.

  Panthers | Carolina checked in on Deshaun Watson    Mon Apr 5, 05:53 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson received trade interest from the Carolina Panthers, but the Panthers decided to acquire QB Sam Darnold, according to sources.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Watson's legal situation is going to have teams pumping the brakes on a potential trade. Rather than wait around for Lord knows how long, the Panthers decided to make a move for Darnold.

  Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater may be on block    Mon Apr 5, 04:28 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater likely will be shopped to other teams after the Panthers acquired QB Sam Darnold. They could also consider keeping him on a restructured contract.

Footballguys view: That's what is most likely now that the team has dealt for Sam Darnold. It's difficult to say that Darnold is a huge upgrade over Bridgewater, but with better coaching than he received from Adam Gase we could see Darnold play at a high level. That's what happened to Ryan Tannehill after he was able to get away from Gase and thrive with the Titans.

  Panthers | Sam Darnold's option to be picked up    Mon Apr 5, 04:19 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Sam Darnold will have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That's the reports after the trade. This way the Panthers have control of Darnold through the 2022 season. If he plays well, we're sure the team would try to sign him to a long-term deal.

  Panthers | Carolina acquires Sam Darnold    Mon Apr 5, 04:01 PM

New York Jets QB Sam Darnold was acquired by the Carolina Panthers Monday, April 5, in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round draft choice, a 2022 second-round draft choice and a 2022 fourth-round draft choice.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are getting a quarterback who could turn things around post Adam Gase (see Ryan Tannehill) and they're not giving up that much for him. Darnold gives the team a starter with experience who could be an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater. The Panthers wanted Deshaun Watson (Texans) but that's no longer the case with the legal issues around him. Darnold gives them a cheap option with upside. This likely takes quarterback off the board with the no.8 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

  Panthers | David Moore could be No. 3 WR    Sun Mar 21, 02:56 PM

Carolina Panthers WR David Moore will compete for the No. 3 receiver job behind WRs D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson during training camp.

Footballguys view: We'll see how Moore fits in with his new team. He's a deep threat but needs to get enough targets behind D.J. Moore and Anderson...and RB Christian McCaffrey and perhaps even TEs Dan Arnold and Ian Thomas. That means there may not be that much leftover for the newly acquired Moore.

  Panthers | Dan Arnold headed to Carolina    Fri Mar 19, 09:27 PM

Free-agent TE Dan Arnold (Cardinals) agreed to terms on a two-year, $6 million deal with the Carolina Panthers Friday, March 19, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Arnold is reconnected with Panthers OC Joe Brady from their days together with the Saints. He's 'meh' as a blocker but the receiving skills are there for him to have fantasy appeal as potentially the no.1 tight end for the Panthers. We'll see Arnold and Ian Thomas compete for that spot in training camp.

  Panthers | Christian McCaffrey reworks deal    Wed Mar 10, 01:32 PM

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey has agreed to restructure his contract in order for the team to create salary cap space, according to head coach Matt Rhule.

Footballguys view: McCaffrey is looking to get back on track after an injury-shortened 2020 season. He'll once again be the lead back and do-everything player for the Panthers offense. Who is passing him the ball is a mystery at this time, but McCaffrey is once again going to be a 1.01 pick in most fantasy leagues.

  Panthers | Hunter Henry a fit for Carolina?    Sun Mar 7, 07:51 PM

Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent TE Hunter Henry could be pursued by the Carolina Panthers to upgrade a passing attack that generated a total of 204 receiving yards from the tight end position in 2020, according to Seth Galina of Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: The Panthers had Greg Olsen at the tight end position for years and years. Without him the team has not had as much success. Henry is a TE1 for Fantasy GMs and would continue that no matter where he lands. The Panthers are going to make a big run at Deshaun Watson if/when he's on the trading block.

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is a target of the Carolina Panthers, who are clearing salary cap space to attempt to trade for him, according to sources. The Panthers cleared $19.9 million this week by releasing four players.

Footballguys view: The Panthers tried to make a move for Matthew Stafford but that did not go through. They will be in on Watson if/when the Texans decide to trade him. We expect serious contenders for Watson to be the Dolphins, Broncos, 49ers, Jets and Panthers.
