Which former Carolina Panthers players showed out for their new teams in Week 1 of the 2020 season?
The Carolina Panthers parted ways with some key pieces this offseason as they began their rebuilding process under the new regime.
Some departures were expected given their lack of production and advancing years. But there were others that left many scratching their heads regarding just where the Carolina Panthers are heading in 2020 and beyond.
Almost every veteran player who left the Panthers found themselves new homes at some stage of the preparation period. Fans always like to keep an eye on those they once cheered on and there were plenty of those in action during Week 1 of the 2020 season.
Carolina did show some signs of life in their 34-30 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders at Bank of America Stadium. But there is a long way to go before we can determine whether or not the organization is better off without those who they let go following the previous campaign.
Things might get worse in the coming months before the Panthers start to see signs of real progress. Such a significant change in personnel across the entire franchise is always going to take time to get right. But if they can learn, develop as a unit and pick up some morale-boosting wins along the way, it will stand them in good stead going forward.
Let’s take a look at some of the top performances from 2019 Panthers from Week 1.
