Panthers offseason roster review: Special Teams
5 of 6
Fozzy Whittaker, Christian McCaffrey, Curtis Samuel, Damiere Byrd, Russell Shepard
Curtis Samuel registered the most kick returns last year despite having his season shortened by injury. The second-year player is expected back on the field this season and if he can stay healthy, should provide the best option moving forward.
Opposite him, Fozzy Whittaker has been the longest tenured kick return man although he doesn’t provide the same breakaway speed. While he may not be as dynamic a runner as McCaffrey, Whittaker does provide a solid option with experience in key situations.
