Carolina Panthers could sign Parris Campbell

Parris Campbell is another player that makes a lot of sense for the Carolina Panthers. But very similar to Mecole Hardman, injuries have been the most consistent part of his young NFL career.

After being drafted in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Campbell has only played in 32 games during his four-year professional tenure. Seventeen of those came this past season.

Having put together his first full campaign, he obviously enjoyed his finest statistical season to date as well, amassing 63 receptions, 623 receiving yards, and three touchdowns. Those numbers are even more impressive when you consider the quarterback carousel and offensive struggles that the Indianapolis Colts faced in 2022.

There’s also the obvious familiarity that coach Frank Reich would have with Campbell, having coached him at the beginning of last season for the Colts before Jim Irsay hired his buddy Jeff Saturday to play the television role of NFL head coach.

Reich had a front-row view of Campbell’s abilities and value to an offense. So he will know better than any of us if the player is a good fit in Carolina.

Carrying an estimated market value of just $2.5M annually, Campbell could serve as a value-friendly addition to the Panthers in 2023.
