5 free-agent wide receivers the Panthers could sign in 2021

If new general manager Scott Fitterer is looking for additional help at wide receiver in free agency, then he might want to look at his former employer for a possible recruit. David Moore proved to be a useful weapon in the Seattle Seahawks passing attack in 2020, making his presence count in the red zone on his way to six touchdowns.
Moore benefitted from having a duo such as Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf shouldering the load. His route-running noticeably improved as the season went on, with the former seventh-round pick getting open quickly with great success.
This was another late-round prospect Fitterer found working with Seattle’s front office. The Carolina Panthers chose him as the man to replace Marty Hurney in the hope he can do the same in a different environment and he’ll know more than anybody just what Moore could bring to the table.
The wideout’s increased reliability brought an eye-popping 74.5 percent catch success, which was 24.5% higher than his previous career-high. Moore has the capability to get even better in the coming years and bringing him to Carolina would be a shrewd addition, to put it mildly.
4 options if the Carolina Panthers wait until 2022 for a new QB
Which options could be available to the Carolina Panthers if they are forced to wait until 2022 for a new quarterback to replace Teddy Bridgewater?
Moore will know the part Fitterer played in giving him a chance to shine at the next level. So a reunion between the two isn’t entirely out of the question.
