5 former Carolina Panthers still looking for work before 2022 camp
Mike Remmers – Former Carolina Panthers OT
Mike Remmers is not a name fondly remembered by Carolina Panthers fans. This is down in no small part to his inept failure in Super Bowl 50 against Von Miller, which played a leading role in the team falling short after a phenomenal 15-1 season and the organization taking the league by storm.
Remmers came back for another season in 2016 despite calls to remove him from the equation entirely. The former Oregon State standout gave up nine sacks and conceded a whopping 15 penalties en route to a creditable 71.2 grade from Pro Football Focus, but it wasn’t enough to convince the Panthers he was worth a bigger financial commitment.
The lineman spent time with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants before landing on the Kansas City Chiefs, where Remmers was once again blamed heavily for failing to protect Patrick Mahomes as they were pummeled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for all the marbles.
Remmers was relegated to a depth chart piece in Kansas City last season, turning out in just 156 snaps. At 33 years old, the player is still seeking another opportunity and there is enough bad film to suggest that might not come at all.
This could obviously alter if a team feels like Remmer could provide additional depth. But his days as a starter appear to be a thing of the past.
