  • 2020 team – Kansas City Chiefs

Bringing in a Super Bowl winner to the Carolina Panthers would give everybody a big lift. In Demarcus Robinson‘s case, it would also give them a dynamic weapon in the passing game that looks ready to thrive elsewhere with a more increased role.

Robinson has clearly benefitted from having the likes of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce taking most of the attention during his time with the Kansas City Chiefs. That being said, the wideout has made some eye-catching plays under pressure and his outstanding 76.3 percent catch success rate in 2020 was yet another indication of what a tremendous player he’s becoming.

Whether Robinson wants to leave Kansas City in favor of a move to a different environment remains to be seen.

The Chiefs are looking to get back on top of the mountain following their defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that denied them back-to-back Vince Lombardi trophies. But they might not have the money available to give the player what he wants.

Players with Robinson’s skill set are always in high demand. So if the Chiefs opt to let him test the market, a bidding war might put him out of Carolina’s reach.

Plenty of teams will take a chance in the hope he can shine even further with more targets coming his way. But it’s an option the Panthers should enquire about, at the very least.
