Which members of the Carolina Panthers could become under threat from release after the first two weeks of training camp?

It promises to be an important few weeks for those looking to stake a claim with the Carolina Panthers. Training camp drills are increasing in demand. And how each hopeful performs will go a long way to determining their aspirations going forward.

With no preseason games on the schedule due to the ongoing COVID-19 health concerns. It is vital that each member of the Carolina Panthers catches the eye during practice. This is not an easy thing do to at the best of times. But having plenty of competition for places on the roster will make things even more challenging this time around.

New head coach Matt Rhule is keen to give everyone a chance. Fringe players will be working with projected starters as well as the second unit. And this appears to be the fairest way for the former Baylor man to see just what sort of talent he will be working with further down the depth chart.

The NFL is a ruthless business at this stage of the season. Players are fighting for jobs and in some cases their careers. So there will be no margin for error during the remainder of what has been an offseason period that will live long in the memory.

If a certain player is good enough, then they could be given a better chance in Carolina compared to a real contender. The Panthers are building for the future. And going with youthful potential over experience at the next level might be more prevalent here than elsewhere.

Cutting players might be an essential part of the preparation period. But it does not make things any easier. Some big decisions will need to be made by Rhule and others in the coming weeks. And here are four players who currently find themselves under threat at training camp.
