T.J. Green – Carolina Panthers CB

The Carolina Panthers also suffered their fair share of struggles at cornerback against the Las Vegas Raiders. This unit has the potential to become problematic in 2020 and they didn’t get off to the best start, to put it mildly.

Having Donte Jackson go out of the game in the first quarter was far from ideal. The former LSU standout was looking to prove he is capable of making the No. 1 spot his own this season and it remains to be seen whether this is going to be a short-term absence or something longer.

Either way one looks at it, the Panthers will need to make some serious adjustments to prevent a talented Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offense from torturing the team’s cornerbacks next Sunday. The likes of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are going to be eagerly awaiting the prospect of coming up against this group. So Carolina needs to be ready for the considerable challenge that awaits them.

The Panthers brought back T.J. Green to the practice squad after initially deciding not to keep the defensive back around. The veteran gave a solid account of himself at training camp and he has the right sort of length to make a significant difference when called upon.

It might not be the time for drastic measures just yet. But if certain individuals do not learn from their mistakes and cost the team, then Green is a realistic option to try and improve matters.
