Which post-June 1 cut candidates could the Carolina Panthers potentially have their eye on if they do become available at some stage?

The Carolina Panthers have quietly gone about their business this offseason and left plenty of salary-cap space available to make further roster improvements should they wish. This would be welcome within certain positional groups, which should be another major boost ahead of a crucial third season at the helm for head coach Matt Rhule.

This is also about finding the right fits and striking with conviction. Something the Panthers have managed to do well in recent months.

Of course, some areas need reinforcements more than others. This will also be dependent on what the coaching staff sees from their current options over the preparation period with workouts now taking place ahead of training camp.

On this subject, we picked out five potential post-June 1 cut candidates that the Panthers should monitor leading into the 2022 campaign.

Carolina Panthers should monitor Isaac Seumalo

It’s been an outstanding period of recruitment across the offensive line this offseason. Bradley Bozeman and Austin Corbett should solidify the interior after joining in free agency, with the Carolina Panthers getting extremely lucky during the draft when Ikem Ekwonu was there for the taking at No. 6 overall.

With that being said, there are still concerns about who will start at the left guard spot. If the Philadelphia Eagles end up cutting Isaac Seumalo, then it represents an intriguing option depending on how the lineman returns from a serious injury that forced him to miss almost the entire 2021 season.

Seumalo’s brief time on the field last season was impressive. But the Eagles might give him another chance at winning a starting job rather than save themselves $5.6 million against the cap.
