Carolina has no shortage of roster holes heading into the 2019 offseason. If the Panthers are likely to continue to be aggressive in a brutal NFC south division, they really should make the most of absolutely free agency, the draft and trades in buy to tackle them. Before this week, we appeared at five defensive gamers who may make perception in a trade.
Now, here’s five offensive gamers that the crew could likely goal in a trade this calendar year.
Why: Carolina is in the marketplace for a new backup quarterback driving Cam Newton. As prolonged as the Panthers are on the lookout, they may as nicely kick the tires on the dude who’s founded himself as the most clutch backup in soccer. The Eagles have selected Carson Wentz to be their QB1 of the foreseeable future, which leaves Nick Foles in a weird problem. He not long ago purchased out the team’s $2 million option and the most up-to-date chatter indicates they may franchise tag Foles and then trade him. If that’s the circumstance, them the Panthers really should at minimum make a simply call.
Why not: Foles would be an great insurance policy plan at quarterback in circumstance Newton’s shoulder acts up once more, but he’d also be an particularly high-priced one particular. A franchise tag at the position this calendar year is projected to value all around $24-$25 million. Foles’ good results in the playoffs would also inevitably generate up the price tag of any likely prolonged-term deal.
