Will Grier could be good

As stated previously, Will Grier should get something of a pass for his efforts as a rookie in 2019. The Carolina Panthers had no option other than to throw him in at the deep end behind a porous offensive line and the West Virginia product struggled accordingly.

Grier was also a victim of Matt Rhule’s preference to surround himself with familiar faces from the college level in Carolina last season.

He preferred P.J. Walker as the primary backup for a large portion of the campaign, leaving Grier on the outside looking in and his future with the franchise in some doubt.

The signal-caller has been working hard this offseason in a bid to change perceptions. Grier has the skill set and some encouraging arm strength, even though he might be fighting a losing battle in Carolina after a difficult two years.

It would be a huge shock if Grier eventually became the Panthers’ starter.

They have gone away from him in 2019 and 2020. So a fresh start at some stage could be beneficial for the player in pursuit of winning a starting job elsewhere.

And who knows, the Panthers might be kicking themselves where Grier is concerned if he turns into a productive player. One that hasn’t really been given a fair shake in Carolina.
