Which free agents currently going under the radar could be useful additions for the Carolina Panthers ahead of training camp in 2021?

Although it would be a surprise to see the Carolina Panthers dip into the free-agent market before training camp later this month, it’s not entirely out of the question. Prominent veteran players could get snapped up pretty quickly when injuries inevitably strike on certain teams, so acting fast now could stand the organization in good stead rather than missing out on potential targets entirely.

There are still some big names left to choose from.

The current climate financially has left some who’d normally be on a roster somewhere looking for a new home, which is something the Panthers might want to take advantage of with $10.33 million in salary-cap space remaining, according to Spotrac.

Carolina Panthers could use more depth at certain positions in 2021.

Carolina has an exciting young roster heading into the season. But there are some positional groups that might need reinforcing if they wish to make further strides when competitive action gets underway.

This bears more significance to their depth chart rather than someone that could start right from the outset. Although a couple going relatively under the radar in recent weeks might just be able to assist them immediately should the opportunity present itself.

With this in mind, here are five underrated free agents the Panthers might want to consider before training camp begins.
