Risers and fallers from the 2024 NFL Draft Combine

Risers and fallers from the 2024 NFL Draft Combine

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports The underwear olympics are far from a perfect science, but they do influence player perceptions as we approach the draft. The Carolina Panthers need a lot of help going into the 2024 NFL Draft, and they don’t have a lot of picks to make that happen at the moment. They really, really need to hit on multiple players, which is all the more difficult without a first round pick. Every piece of information is vital when the margins are so small, and the NFL Combine gave us a few more data points in the evaluation process. Players won’t...

Reacts Results: The first round is for other people

Photo by David Jensen/ Fans are divided on what the Panthers should do in their near future The Carolina Panthers are entering the 2024 NFL draft without a first round pick as a result of last year’s Scott-Fitterer-sinking trade with the Chicago Bears for the 2023 first overall pick. With first round picks being both a hugely valuable commodity for franchises who are rebuilding and an unending source of content for poor bloggers with little to talk about in the months of February, March, April, June, July, and August, we thought it would be relevant to ask y’all how...

The Panthers options for franchise tagging Brian Burns

The Panthers options for franchise tagging Brian Burns

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports The Panthers pass rusher has long been thought of as a franchise tag candidate, but that can happen in a number of different ways. Carolina Panthers free agent edge defender Brian Burns has long been regarded as a prime candidate to receive a franchise tag from the team. There are a few different tags the Panthers can use to retain Burns, and each has their own pros and cons. Transition Tag This is probably the least likely avenue the Panthers take. It’s rarely used in general, and it doesn’t seem prudent for the Panthers to use this...

The Carolina Panthers will benefit from the big salary cap bump

Photo by Grant Halverson/ More money to go around is only a good thing for this resource-strapped franchise The NFL salary cap for the 2024 season is set to a record high $255.4M, per Jonathan Jones. While almost every year sets a new record, this year is particularly exciting for fans of the cash and draft pick strapped Carolina Panthers.

Keep Sounding: New front office and coaches, offseason preview

Your favorite irregular podcast is back to discuss the Panthers offseason so far and what’s to come. The Carolina Panthers have had an offseason so far. We hadn’t talked in podcast form since Frank Reich was fired back in November, and we figured enough had transpired between now and then to justify a new podcast episode. Here’s what we got: The decision to fire Scott Fitterer—was it right? The decision to promote Dan Morgan in his place—same question. Dave Canales is the new head coach and the Panthers may have been wise to hop off the Ben Johnson bandwagon A...

Brian Burns and the 2024 NFL salary cap

Morgan Tencza-USA TODAY Sports Where should the Panthers star defender fit in? The Carolina Panthers have a Brian Burns problem. The 16th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft is set to be a free agent this season unless the team can agree to a long term deal with Burns or place the franchise tag on him. Opinions on Burns talent level vary widely, but it is hard to rebut the position that he is the team's clear best edge rusher. With holes left and right across the roster, it seems logical to retain one of the few good players the team has left. Letting him walk leaves a...

Six players to watch at the 2024 NFL Draft Combine

Photo by Michael Hickey/ Using the combine to sift for hidden gems takes on added importance for a Panthers team without a first round pick. The Carolina Panthers don’t have a first round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, which is rather unfortunate since they really really badly need talent. They don’t have many picks in general, which means it’s vital that they hit on the ones they do have. The combine shouldn’t be their main source of evaluation, but it provides additional information to support the what they’ve been studying on tape for the past year. The 2024...

Should Ejiro Evero try to bring Jeremy Chinn back to the Panthers?

Photo by Silas Walker/ A look at what went wrong for Chinn in Evero’s defense after the initial plan. The Panthers have quite a few defensive decisions to make for the 2024 free agency period, as they’ll have to figure out the future of two of their best players in Frankie Luvu and Brian Burns. Ejiro Evero is returning to be their defensive coordinator for at least one more season, as continuity appears to be key on that side of the ball. However, the one decision that I honestly can’t get a bead on is defensive back Jeremy Chinn, who is set to be a free agent as...
