Which players could follow new offensive coordinator Thomas Brown to the Carolina Panthers in 2023?
Frank Reich has assembled an exceptional coaching staff heading into the 2023 season. His connections coupled with David Tepper’s vast financial resources have convinced many respected figures and up-and-comers to join the ranks, which puts the Carolina Panthers in a strong position before free agency and the NFL Draft.
The latest eye-catching acquisition was the appointment of Thomas Brown as offensive coordinator. He comes with bags of experience, is a potential head coach down the line, and hails from the Sean McVay coaching tree to further raise expectations.
Obviously, Reich will have a massive input on all things offense. The Panthers also need to upgrade the quarterback position, which is the biggest complication remaining for a team that could be well-placed to make a playoff push in 2023.
Even though Scott Fitterer is in charge of personnel, here are four players that Brown might want to reunite with in Carolina next season.
Player No. 1
Carolina Panthers could sign Oday Aboushi
The offensive line made substantial improvements in 2022 under the exceptional tutelage of James Campen. But with Bradley Bozeman out of contract and injury worries surrounding Brady Christensen and Austin Corbett, depth pieces should be sought in some capacity.
Oday Aboushi knows Thomas Brown well from their time together on the Los Angeles Rams. His solid if not spectacular production last season could mean the Carolina Panthers examine the player if the price is right.
