Panthers 2021 Season in Review
In 2021 the Carolina Panthers finished the season with a 5-12 record. The team looks to improve in 2022, with new staff coming in on offense and special teams. The 2021 Panthers record was not what the team had hoped for. After working hard to secure Sam Darnold from the Jets the Panthers were ready to play some impressive football. Now the team may move on from Darnold and use their draft pick for a rookie quarterback. Some roster rebuilding is due in Carolina.
Panthers fans expected more from Sam Darnold. Yes, it's been just one season, and the team leveraged a lot to get him. Still, the Panthers will be looking to trade Darnold, possibly losing money over the deal. The team will look to the NFL draft to replace Darnold. Malik Willis is getting some serious attention at QB. Will the team's sixth pick in round one go toward a passer or a franchise player? Someone like Kayvon Thibodeaux may still be on the board at spot number six, and the Panthers general manager stated that he might go for a franchise player on defense if things go their way. Ron Rivera will have big decisions to make if the team wants to improve its overall record in 2022.
The Carolina Panthers entered 2017 with high hopes. Cameron Newton had become one of the best in the league with an MVP under his belt already. Add into that a loaded defense and revamped offense and 2017 had the makings of a special season for the Panthers. They finished the regular season 11-5, good for the 5th seed in the NFC playoffs. Their Super Bowl aspirations were dashed on Wild Card weekend in New Orleans as they went down 31-26. So what did they do this offseason to build on their 2017 success?
Before the start of free agency, they released three veterans of note, “ball hawk” safety Kurt Coleman, defensive end Charles Johnson, and running back Jonathan Stewart. Their first signing was the extension of kicker Graham Gano, who has become one of the better ones in the league. In addition, they also extended future hall-of-fame defensive end, Julius Peppers. Next, they traded for speedy wide receiver Torrey Smith from the Eagles. Smith has bounced around the league a little and is looking to settle down for a while now. In free agency, the Panthers made three moves of note, signing defensive tackle Dontari Poe, wide receiver Jarius Wright, and safety Da’Norris Searcy. Late in free agency, they extended center Tyler Larsen, extended tight end Greg Olsen, and claimed quarterback Taylor Heinecke off waivers to potentially back up Newton.
The Panthers ended up with eight selections and used them well for the draft. In round one, they needed to continue to revamp their wide receivers and came away with D.J. Moore from Maryland. Their next two selections were cornerbacks, Donte Jackson from LSU, and Rashaan Gaulden from Tennessee. Next, they went back to offense and grabbed tight end Ian Thomas from Indiana, who they could potentially grow into Greg Olsen’s replacement. They spent the remainder of the draft adding depth on defense- outside linebacker Marquis Haynes from Mississippi, cornerback Jermaine Carter from Maryland, inside linebacker Andre Smith from North Carolina, and defensive lineman Kendrick Norton from Miami. The Panthers have a revamped offense and a more balanced team this year. They may be one of the big favorites to win the whole thing.
