It's obvious Carolina is looking for an upgrade and will move Bridgewater if they can garner an acceptable offer. Reports also surfaced that the Lions were interested prior to their acquisition of Jared Goff from the Rams. Still only 28 and coming off a lackluster 2020 campaign, Bridgewater may still possess upside in the right system but apparently Carolina believes it's time to move on from the 2023 free agent. Bridgewater's $22.95M cap hit is a number far more suited to a starter than backup and will be an issue in trade negotiations. It's fully believe the Panthers will select a quarterback highly in the 2021 NFL Draft. Ranked as DLF's QB26, 2021 will be a pivotal year in determining his future value.
