Carolina Panthers Free Agency Targets: Offensive Tackles

Left tackle has been an issue in Carolina for quite a while. In fact, the Panthers have had eight different full-time players at the position in as many years: Byron Bell (2014) Michael Oher (2015) Mike Remmers (2016) Matt Kalil (2017) Chris Clark (2018) Dennis Daley (2019 ) Russell Okung (2020), and Cameron Erving (2021).

After allowing over 50 sacks this past season, the offensive line needs a major facelift and it starts with the left tackle spot. Cameron Erving isn’t going to get it done and there are still some questions surrounding Brady Christensen in regards to what his best fit is. The most ideal way to fix this situation would be to sign a veteran left tackle in free agency that will protect the quarterback’s blindside consistently. Even with somewhat limited cap space, don’t be shocked to see GM Scott Fitterer move some money around to throw out a lucrative contract to a top free agent tackle next month.
