Dan Morgan has brought in a plethora of new faces to his roster this offseason. Drastic alterations were anticipated after the Carolina Panthers put together one of their worst seasons in the franchise's three-decade history. The new front-office leader removed deadwood and ensured there was future flexibility to be bigger players in free agency moving forward providing some progress arrives in 2024.

This was an important first step in Morgan's long-term plans. Looking at how ruthless the general manager has been with no sentiment attached to the decision-making since his promotion, nobody should feel a level of comfort about their status aside from a few cornerstone pieces.

The level of urgency is evident as the Panthers look to emerge from rock bottom and back to competitiveness. It won't be easy, but Morgan will be watching developments closely in the weeks and months ahead before deciding on further steps when the 2025 offseason arrives.

With this in mind, here are seven Panthers players who could be one and done with the team in 2024.

Nick Scott - Carolina Panthers S

The Carolina Panthers transitioned their investment to the offensive side of the football in their quest to ensure they get a true evaluation of quarterback Bryce Young's capabilities next season. Ejiro Evero will have to make the best out of a bad situation, but the defensive coordinator got the opportunity to identify players he's worked with previously to ensure complications are kept to a minimum.

Nick Scott was one such player, signing a one-year deal to potentially solidify the safety depth chart behind Xavier Woods and Jordan Fuller. While Evero was happy enough with the acquisition, his production last season means the jury is still out as to whether or not he can be an asset.

Scott regressed with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2023 and saw his snap percentage diminish to 52 as a result. Anything less than making every rep count could see the Panthers go in a different direction next year.
