Jeremy Chinn wants more turnovers for Carolina Panthers’ defense

Jeremy Chinn is entering his third season with the Carolina Panthers and if he can raise his game once again, the sky’s the limit. The explosive defensive weapon wasted no time in making a considerable impact on the organization all over the field, something that’s quickly seen the Southern Illinois product become an indispensable member of the roster in a short space of time.

Chinn could make himself a very rich man this season. The 2020 second-round selection is out of contract in 2024 and if the numbers are there, the Panthers would be wise to tie him down long-term once the upcoming campaign concludes.

Upon speaking with media in attendance at Wofford College, Chinn once again outlined his desire for the Panthers to start turning the football over more frequently in 2022. This would assist their cause greatly and perhaps make Phil Snow’s defense among the league’s most feared.

"“Our turnover margin last year was not where wanted it to be, so taking the ball away is the next step for everyone and me personally. We had positions last year and this year but with coach (Steve) Wilks back, it should help.”"

Carolina’s secondary is certainly capable of achieving this objective based on the return of Jaycee Horn, Donte Jackson re-signing, and the addition of Xavier Woods from the Minnesota Vikings n free agency. Whether their defensive front will hold them back without Haason Reddick is the big question.
