4 Panthers players who could boost their trade value in 2021
By Dean Jones
Which Carolina Panthers players could potentially boost their trade value during the 2021 season?
There has been plenty of player turnover once again for the Carolina Panthers this offseason. General manager Scott Fitterer wasted no time in making his presence felt across the organization following his arrival, which resulted in some bold moves and unprecedented draft trade activity that leaves the roster looking a lot more promising heading into the 2021 campaign.
It wasn’t an easy situation for the former Seattle Seahawks front office member to be coming into. COVID-19 caused some significant salary-cap reductions this year, which the Panthers handled really well in the circumstances.
Fitterer wanted to be “in on every deal”, which was a statement he’s more than backed up so far. The major move is obviously trading for Sam Darnold from the New York Jets and sending Teddy Bridgewater to the Denver Broncos, which is a big gamble that could really go either way unless the USC product makes some big strides forward in a short space of time.
There will be nothing to stop Fitterer from making additional moves in the trade market – in or not – if he thinks it will benefit the franchise in the long run.
He’s made a hugely impressive start to life in the role. But if things aren’t going to plan on the field, expect to see something happen with pressure mounting on Carolina to start putting more wins on the board.
With this in mind, let’s take a look at four Panthers players who could potentially boost their trade value in 2021.
