Here are three questions surrounding the quarterback room of the Carolina Panthers heading into training camp.

The Carolina Panthers are gearing up for their most important training camp in recent memory. The first year of Matt Rhule’s rebuild has been hugely hampered by the current climate. And the next few weeks should tell us plenty about what sort of things we can expect from the team in 2020.

Rhule normally gets the job done when it comes to turning around struggling programs. But his chances of making the same impact in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers have not been made easy in recent months. Add to this no preseason games and a vastly changed schedule at camp. And it leaves plenty of uncertainty regarding their overall fortunes.

One of the main areas that have undergone significant changes is the quarterback room. Long-serving player Cam Newton was moved on when starting opportunities were at a premium. And this is something that didn’t exactly paint the Panthers in a good light.

What comes next will either come with vindication regarding their decision to part ways with their former franchise player. Or it will provide those who still have a sour taste in the mouth with more fuel for their fire.

Not much is expected of the Panthers in 220. But that doesn’t mean the organization doesn’t have to show at least some progression as the season goes on no matter what record they end up with.

Any disappointing quarterback is going to come with clamorings for Carolina to draft someone like Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields in 2021. And here are three questions surrounding the Panthers’ QB room heading into camp.
