Carolina Panthers Roster 2020 Carolina Panthers Roster

5-11, 3rd NFC South

vs NO

9:25 pm GMT , 1/3

It was a year of losing notable names for the Carolina Panthers as they saw names like Cam Newton and Greg Olsen depart. That was just the offensive side as they lost Luke Keuchly and James Bradberry as well. The offense got most of the focus bringing in Teddy Bridgewater and Robby Anderson. They did draft Derrick Brown and their draft consisted of defensive players to offset the offensive spending in free agency. The offense is loaded with weapons for Bridgewater as they have Moore, Anderson, and Samuel as featured options for him. They also have a top three back in the league with Christian McCaffrey.

Top Panthers Roster Questions of 2020

FAQ

The Panthers had a disappointing 2019 season, finishing with a 5-11 record as the worst team in the NFC South. Carolina last made the playoffs in 2017 and last won their division in 2015, the same season they made a trip to the Super Bowl. That roster has been significantly picked apart since, most notably with quarterback Cam Newton and linebacker Luke Kuechly, previously the team's two best players, no longer on the team. Christian McCaffrey is now the best player on the roster and solidified himself as the best running back in football with just under 2,400 yards from scrimmage and 19 total touchdowns in 2019. The rest of the Panthers' offense will feature some new faces in quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, wide receiver Robby Anderson, head coach Matt Rhule, and offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Carolina drafted seven defensive players this year, three of whom should be Day 1 starters in defensive tackle Derrick Brown, defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos, and safety Jeremy Chinn. The Panthers don't have strong playoff odds for this season but they have a replenished roster and should be better than last season.

Who is the Highest Paid Panthers Player?

The Panthers' highest-paid player heading into the 2020 season is Kawann Short who carries a $19.5 million cap hit. Short only got on the field for two games in 2019 but has been with Carolina since 2013 and has made two Pro Bowls in that span.

Who Owns the Carolina Panthers?

The current owner of the Carolina Panthers is David Tepper who purchased the team from the original owner and founder Jerry Richardson in 2018. Tepper is reportedly committed to keeping the team in the Carolina area, although its lease at Bank of America Stadium is under renegotiation.

Who Is the Panthers Head Coach?

Matt Rhule is entering his first season as the Panthers' head coach. He previously served for the Baylor and Temple college football teams and was an NFL coach for one season as the assistant offensive line coach for the Giants.

How Much Cap Space do the Panthers Have?

The Panthers currently have about $11.1 million in available salary-cap space, which is just the 12th-least in the NFL. The team has an obscene $41 million in dead-cap money owed to former players, which is among the most in the NFL. They only have three contracts with a $10+ million cap hit.

Who is the Panthers' Starting Quarterback?

Longtime starting quarterback Cam Newton is no longer with the team and will be replaced by former Vikings' and Saints' quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater previously made the Pro Bowl in 2015 as he led the Vikings to an 11-5 record. He should be set for career-best numbers in this offense.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Panthers?

Heading into the 2020 season, the youngest player on the Panthers' roster is fifth-round draft pick Kenny Robinson, who is a safety coming out of West Virginia. Robinson likely won't start right away but he figures to be a contributing defensive player in a draft full of them for the Panthers.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Panthers?

The oldest player on the Panthers' roster is long snapper J.J. Jansen who has been with the team since 2009 - he's currently 34 years old. Graham Gano, the team's kicker since 2012, is 33 years old. Gano will have to earn back the starting spot after missing all of the 2019 season.
