It’s been an intriguing offseason period for the Carolina Panthers with plenty of encouraging signs heading into the 2022 campaign.

With the 2022 NFL Draft in the books and training camp on the horizon, Carolina Panthers fans have been desperate for content and footage of some of the rookies and new additions as this slow time of the offseason continues.

The Panthers Confidential video was highly anticipated by a lot of fans, and it brought many positive vibes and reasons to look forward to the 2022 season. A sign that things might finally be trending on an upward curve for Carolina after a difficult spell that’s come with just 15 wins over the last three seasons.

There are still some questions that remain. But the team now has a solid young core with the right mix of veteran leadership that can push forward and give the fanbase something to cheer at long last.

Without further ado, here are four encouraging signs from what’s been another eventful offseason period for the Panthers in 2022.

Carolina Panthers showed patience and conviction

After some rash recruitment decisions over the first two years of Matt Rhule‘s tenure, there was a noticeably more patient approach to things this time around. Those in power were methodical and struck with conviction to get their desired targets, which strengthened problem areas and also left plenty of spare cash for other incomings should they wish.

The Carolina Panthers still have a little to do, most notably at the quarterback spot and potentially on the defensive side of things. But the roster looks balanced and ready to make its presence felt providing everything goes smoothly during the preparation period.

It’s a small step in the right direction, that’s for sure. However, all fans will care about is whether or not this can translate to winning football where it counts.
