Which members of the Carolina Panthers could be set to bounce-back from various different setbacks in 2020?

New head coach Matt Rhule wasted no time in making his presence felt with the Carolina Panthers. The former Baylor man has been given free rein to make the moves needed to turn around the fortunes of the franchise. And this has resulted in the majority of veteran players moving on for various reasons.

It will be strange to see the Carolina Panthers lining up without Greg Olsen, Luke Kuechly, and Cam Newton next season. All three played a pivotal role in the team’s rise to prominence. And others will need to stand up and be counted going forward.

Although Rhule and general manager Marty Hurney removed a number of underperforming stars from the organization. There are a few than remain who go into 2020 with a point to prove. Those that suffered struggles last time out have been given another chance to make a real go of things in Carolina. And it is vital they make the most out of this opportunity.

This is something of a last chance saloon for some players on the roster. Individuals who don’t have the comfort of long-term deals are all fighting for their futures under the new regime. But it remains to be seen whether they can rise to the challenge.

They have survived the first round of changes, which indicates that the coaching staff does possess some faith in them to turn things around. Bounce back seasons regarding players lacking confidence do happen more often than not. And here are four Panthers that could get their careers back on track following setbacks.
