Justin Britt – C

Tyler Larsen heading to the reserve/injured list last week leaves no viable replacement should Matt Paradis goes down with an injury. The center has enjoyed something of a renaissance after a disappointing 2019 campaign that has been a tremendous asset for the Carolina Panthers through the first six weeks of the season.

Justin Britt is experienced enough to come in and fill a backup role. He remains on the free-agent market after turning out for the Seattle Seahawks last season, where he gave up two sacks and one penalty from 504 snaps to secure a 62.0 grade from Pro Football Focus.

Those who can play center can also be of some use across other areas of the interior. The Panthers are down two linemen from their rotational options and adding someone like Britt would give them stability. It would also provide the organization with someone who has experience of being in a winning environment in Seattle, which would also stand this new-look roster in good stead.

This move isn’t exactly going to break the bank. All players like Britt are looking for at this juncture is another opportunity almost halfway through the campaign. But whether Carolina would go in this direction or aim their attention towards a lesser-known player with a higher ceiling is up for debate.
