Which current Panthers players could play both sides of the ball like Shohei Ohtani has done in baseball?

It’s not every day that sports fans get to witness an athlete occupy two different positions on the field, let alone play extremely well at both spots.

That’s exactly what we’re witnessing in Major League Baseball right now as Los Angeles Angels two-way player Shohei Ohtani has been an All-Star this season as a starting pitcher and a designated hitter.

Ohtani arrived in the U.S. from Japan in 2018 and was expected to be a pitcher/hitter. However, injuries continued to derail him while attempting to play both positions until this season.

Now, Ohtani has taken the sports world by storm and it has many wondering again what other players could play both sides if asked?

In the NFL, we’ve seen defensive backs attempt to play wide receiver, quarterbacks attempt to catch balls, and kickers try to play defense but not many are successful. Many players play two positions in high school and sometimes in college.

With Ohtani proving to do something that hasn’t been seen since Babe Ruth in baseball, it has us wondering which Carolina Panthers players could play on both sides of the ball?

Last season, Myles Hartsfield played safety and running back for the Panthers, so since we’ve seen it happen, he won’t be listed.

Here is a look at the four most likely.
