Which position groups on the Carolina Panthers depth chart could use some strengthening before competitive action commences in 2022? 

The Carolina Panthers have done a nice job of strengthening their roster overall this offseason. There wasn’t much spare cash to go around prior to free agency, but the organization moved some money around to pick up key pieces and still leave plenty left over to make additional moves if needed.

We are just a few weeks away from Carolina’s training camp in Spartanburg. One of the most important periods in franchise history considering what’s at stake for the Panthers in 2022.

If Matt Rhule cannot turn things around, then team owner David Tepper might find someone who can. Although the roster looks more balanced this time around, there are still some areas that could use reinforcements if the right opportunities come along.

With this in mind, here are four Panthers position groups that still need bolstering before the 2022 season arrives in the not-too-distant future.

Carolina Panthers could strengthen TE spot

Although Ian Thomas has done little to make strides in the passing game since Greg Olsen departed the Carolina Panthers, the team still appears confident in his ability under the guidance of new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.

Hopes also remain relatively high for Tommy Tremble, who flashed as a rookie and could become more dominant if his pass-catching and route-running are brought on in the coming weeks.

However, if these two figures cannot make the improvements needed, then don’t be surprised if the Panthers bring in a more dependable presence that could assist next season.
