As the Carolina Panthers prepare for the offseason, the team could look at some of Matt Rhule’s former college players once again.
The Carolina Panthers are heading into the 2021 offseason with a few needs to address on their roster. However, they have to be extremely smart with their moves operating on a limited budget with the salary-cap coming down due to COVID-19 revenue losses.
The highlight of the Carolina Panthers’ offseason so far has been the quarterback spot, and it has overshadowed other needs on the team. Furthermore, the organization may look at filing other spots on the roster as well as getting an upgrade on Teddy Bridgewater.
Carolina has a few free agents that may be re-signed this offseason, which will affect how the team brings in new players. One of Carolina’s biggest free agents is Taylor Moton, who’s the starting right tackle and one of the best in the business.
If the Panthers break the bank in re-signing players and still wish to target good additions during free agency, they could likely look at some individuals who have a familiar relationship with head coach Matt Rhule.
Rhule was the head football coach at Temple and then at Baylor. While the Panthers have the most former players from both programs on their roster, they could look at some more options who are familiar with the scheme.
The Panthers already have a history of signing players who have an association with someone on their staff. While this may be Rhule’s second season as Carolina’s head coach, they may look to continue to bring in some familiar faces who can hit the ground running.
WIthout furthermore, let’s take a look at three former players that played for Rhule in college that the Panthers can possibly trade for or sign.
