Carolina Panthers could sign Kyzir White

Kyzir White was a standout performer in the Philadelphia Eagles’ playoff run last season. And he will be looking to get a pay raise for his efforts, either with his current employers or elsewhere.

The Carolina Panthers are a team that could utilize White’s talents as the Eagles did. So this would be an outstanding weapon for Ejiro Evero to call upon throughout his first campaign as the team’s defensive coordinator.

White fit like a glove on Philadelphia’s defense last season. Carolina’s defense under Evero in 2023 will look a lot like the system where he had success.

He was a core piece of one of the best defenses in the NFL. But someone like White will have many suitors lining up to attract him if the player and the Eagles go their separate ways.

White is set to command a solid chunk of money from whoever signs him. Something that could hold back the Panthers from approaching the one-time West Virginia star.

Last season’s performance and his talent speak for themselves, and White is a linebacker that would be a core piece of Carolina’s defense if they were to sign him. The only question is whether or not the Panthers can afford such a move in their current financial state.
