Carolina Panthers: 3 trade targets from the Miami Dolphins
Which members of the Miami Dolphins roster could the Carolina Panthers possibly try and acquire via the trade market to boost their fortunes?
The Carolina Panthers have made some bold moves in their bid to turn around their fortunes this offseason. Such significant changes were expected during the first year of a sizeable rebuild. But it will be strange to see the organization without the likes of Cam Newton and Greg Olsen in 2020.
Matt Rhule was given the task of leading the Carolina Panthers back to prominence when he was tempted from Baylor with a seven-year, $60 million deal earlier this year. The task facing the head coach is substantial. And this hasn’t been the easiest transition to the professional ranks thanks to arguably the NFL’s most disrupted preparation period in the current climate.
The front office has laid the foundations in their pursuit of a postseason berth in the near future. They rid themselves of overpaid veterans past their prime. And replaced them with a versatile and athletic young core that might go through their struggles initially. But most will be learning on the job next season and any success they can generate will be a bonus.
More reinforcements will be needed in the coming months to speed up this process in Carolina. The Panthers can look to the 2021 free agency period with a sense of intrigue with their salary cap predicament set to improve. And the organization might also decide to explore possible options in the trade market.
Continuing our series looking at possible trade targets from every NFL team, we now focus on the Miami Dolphins. The franchise parted ways with most of their valuable assets in 2019. And they gained some much-needed draft capital to build a future contender.
Things look far more promising for the Dolphins than at this time last year. And with so much uncertainty surrounding the New England Patriots, they could harbor ambitions of challenging for the AFC East crown if everything clicks into place right away.
Here are three possible targets for the Panthers if they opt to go in this direction.
