Carolina Panthers blueprint docuseries announced

There was an enormous amount of excitement among the fanbase as the Carolina Panthers released a teaser for their upcoming three-part docuseries that centers on a phenomenal few months of change. And according to Darin Gantt from the team's website, it's going to be far more detailed than the average production.

"Beyond the traditional draft shows, Panthers Blueprint offers rare behind-the-scenes footage, as new head coach Frank Reich and [Scott] Fitterer were generous enough to allow our cameras to document the franchise-changing process."

It'll be fascinating to see how different elements of the offseason were approached. From the free-agent signings to the all-star coaching staff assembly and trading up to No. 1 overall in the 2023 NFL Draft for Bryce Young, there will be plenty to keep viewers entertained upon its release next month.
