Jeremy Chinn is a star

This seems to be a recurring theme every week for the Carolina Panthers. However, Jeremy Chinn is just that good and his contribution against the Bears was full of memorable highlights once again.

The rookie is fast becoming the best storyline on the Panthers this season. Carolina made a bold move to trade back into the second round and take the former Southern Illinois standout. But this already looks like being one of general manager Marty Hurney’s best ever moves.

Chinn was everywhere at the second level, which is more than could be said for his linebacker teammates Shaq Thompson and Tahir Whitehead. He continues to play with fearless aggression that is inspiring fans and other roster members alike, which is absolutely extraordinary for someone so young.

His standout play also came with a first career interception at a crucial time in the third quarter, which was only a small sample of the energy and overall class Chinn brought to the table.

It was thought that Chinn was a star in the making before playing a down. But after just six weeks of the 2020 season, he has already reached this sort of level and the best thing about all this is that the player is only going to get better over time.
