Which former Carolina Panthers players are still looking for work with just a few weeks remaining until training camps begin across the league?

The clock is ticking at a rapid rate ahead of what promises to be another entertaining 2022 season full of drama across the NFL. It’s been an offseason period of bombshell moves and significant changes, which was also evident within the Carolina Panthers despite team owner David Tepper’s decision to keep faith with head coach Matt Rhule following another five-win campaign.

Carolina has made positive changes to the coaching staff under Rhule and also adopted a more patient approach to player recruitment that’s served them well. The Panthers have enough talent to make a better go of things next season, but the quarterback dilemma and depth concerns on the defensive front seven might end up holding them back.

Those in power still have enough spare cap space to make something happen if they wish. Although based on negotiations for Baker Mayfield, the Panthers aren’t going to be held to ransom no matter how much it could benefit them short-term.

Speaking of players looking for a change of scenary, here are five prominent former Panthers still sitting on the market ahead of 2022 training camps.

After flattering to deceive once again last season, it’s not surprising to see John Miller on the market. The veteran offensive lineman was inconsistent and offered almost no discipline or accountability throughout the 2021 campaign and the Carolina Panthers swiftly moved on when his contract expired.

This probably didn’t come as a shock to Miller. But another opportunity elsewhere could arrive in the coming weeks on a team that suffers injuries in training camp or feels another depth piece is required before the campaign.

Carolina’s offensive line looks far superior to the one which ended the previous season. Something that suggests Miller won’t be missed in the slightest.
