Which Carolina Panthers jerseys could be risky purchases for the team’s passionate and loyal fanbase in 2021?

Buying a team jersey is the hallmark of any fan and something that supporters young and old do almost every year. Whether it’s a new player, a retro uniform from days gone by, or the face of the franchise, plenty of revenue is generated every season regarding shirt sales and the Carolina Panthers are no different in this regard.

There has been plenty of player turnover where the Panthers are concerned over the last couple of seasons. This is to be expected when one considers the big changes to the coaching staff and the appointment of general manager Scott Fitterer, who wasted no time in stamping his authority on recruitment.

Hopefully, this can come with improved performances on the field. Carolina mixed with some of the league’s best in 2020 without getting over the line when it mattered. If a few tweaks can be made here and there, progression is sure to follow.

Jerseys are taking on a different look this season after the NFL relaxed the rules regarding what positional groups could wear certain numbers. New Panthers cornerback Jaycee Horn will be rocking No. 8 in memory of Kobe Bryant, with other prominent figures across the league also changing to single-digits at great expense to them personally.

With this in mind, we took a look at the five riskiest Panthers jersey purchases in 2021.
