Another avenue the Carolina Panthers might consider going down if they want a little more experience down the stretch is trying to convince Matt Moore to come off the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad for another starting chance.

Easier said than done, but worth a call nonetheless.

Moore has been an exceptional backup during his career and filled in nicely for Kansas City when stud signal-caller Patrick Mahomes was forced to miss some time last season. We all know what happened when he came back, but the former Oregon State standout did finish his two games under center with 659 passing yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions, and a completion percentage of 64.8.

He’s still just 36-years-old, which is relatively young in quarterbacking terms in this day and age. It’s hard to deny offering Moore a short-term role in this offense would be an enticing proposition. But whether the player has entered the comfort stage of his career is up for debate.

Hopefully, for the Panthers, Teddy Bridgewater won’t be out for too long if at all. But calling Moore wouldn’t be a bad alternative if the coaching staff decided that P.J. Walker or Will Grier weren’t ready to assume the role.
