The Carolina Panthers trade for Sam Darnold in return for a 2021 sixth-round pick and second fourth-round pick in 2022, ESPN reports. The Panthers had been looking to upgrade from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater since the end of last season. Carolina had offered Bridgewater to the Detroit Lions for Matthew Stafford, however that deal did not […]
8. Carolina Panthers Will: Rashawn Slater, OL, Northwestern: With all of the consensus top four quarterbacks off the board, Carolina goes its next biggest need, a franchise-changing offensive lineman. Slater brings in the flexibility that Scott Fitterer & Matt Rhule seem to crave in their first offseason working together, and finally gives the Panthers some stability with their biggest question mark entering the offseason. While this pick could very well be Mac Jones, I’m a believer in Joe Person of The Athletic’s latest report which states the Panthers’ lack of infatuation with the QB talent beyond Lawrence & Wilson. Nick: Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State: This may be wishful thinking but unless a trade up happens ahead of Carolina, I think there is a decent chance Trey Lance, Justin Fields or both are there at 8. BEST POSSIBLE SCENARIO. The over analysis on Justin Fields around the NFL has reached embarrassing levels. He checks every physical box you want and has some Cam Newton to his game.
On Monday’s edition of the Clubhouse, Kyle got into a conversation he recently had with former Panthers Safety Roman Harper about who should be the players you set off-limits in trade talks for Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson as Kyle wanted texters to weigh in on the matter as well as Smoke. Smoke told Kyle […]
The NFL has seen a lot of players, primarily big-name quarterbacks, expressing their displeasure with their respective front offices this offseason, leading to some questioning if this will become a long-term trend in the NFL similar to the NBA. Earlier today, Nick Wilson sat down with former NFL Vice President of Player Personnel Tony Softli […]

The Panthers (5-11) are one of the teams in the market to add depth at the quarterback position. Teddy Bridgewater future with the team is in doubt after last season, along with changes in the front office with Scott Fitterer stepping in at the new general manager earlier this month.
To start Wednesday's edition of the Clubhouse, Kyle and Stan recapped day 1 of the Senior Bowl practices which the Panthers coaching staff is apart of. Some of the scuttlebutt down in Mobile is that Alabama QB Mac Jones struggled while former Wake Forest QB Jamie Newman had a stellar day. Despite not playing at all last year where he was planning to spend his final year at Georgia Kyle Bailey thinks that Jamie Newman can show the Panthers coaching staff that he could be the best-kept secret in this year's crop of QB's in the Draft. Kyle even went as far as to say that if Jamie Newman had as good of a year that was expected of him with the Dawgs he could have seen the native from Graham, NC go in the top 10 of this year's draft. Stan agreed with most of what Kyle said about Newman because the reports were that he was going to have the starting QB job at Georgia before he opted-out due to COVID concerns, and Stan said that some of his sources told him that he expects to have knockout interviews with all teams during the draft process over the next few months.
Former Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen called it a career after 14 seasons in the NFL on Sunday. The three-time pro bowler told the world he would step away from playing and enter the broadcast booth as an analyst for FOX Sports' NFL coverage starting next season.
There have been rumors swirling around the last few days regarding the Panthers and Deshaun Watson. The price for Watson would obviously be steep if they decide to move him, and the Panthers could use All-Pro RB Christian McCaffrey to sweeten the trade.
While nobody knows if this move with work out, it seems that Matt Rhule got the guy he wanted since Fitterer has such a scouting background. It was reported yesterday that Rhule wanted someone with a scouting background, while David Tepper wanted a more analytical guy.
