Marquis Haynes – Carolina Panthers DE/OLB

This would be a big call to make considering how important Marquis Haynes is from a rotational standpoint. But the Carolina Panthers have a ton of talent on their defensive front and considering the player is out of contract this offseason, it might be worth exploring a potential trade to get something back in return.

Whether Haynes earns an extended stay is dependent on how much the former fourth-round pick wants when his representatives head to the bargaining table.

The Ole Miss product has proven to be a valuable contributor when called upon, but with just 22 percent of defensive snaps to the player’s name, Haynes’ influence seems to be dwindling thanks to the improved level of talent at Carolina’s disposal.

Every team is always looking for ways to bolster their pass-rush. Trading Haynes would save the Panthers $990,000 in cap money, but what’s more important is the pick someone might offer them in return.

Haynes is a well-respected member of the locker room. But there is absolutely no place for sentiment with the new regime in their bid to turn the Panthers back into a real force.
