Todd Gurley isn't very athletic for an NFL RB at this point his knees are held together by twine and duck tape.

all true...but he would be a good pickup for us

i also have confidence in bonafant....he was playing really well before he got hurt

Honestly, if you just want a special teams/goal line guy, it's possible to get that as a UDFA too.

Ben Mason from Michigan is a hoss. He could fill that FB, H-back, short yardage/goal line void left by Armah leaving in FA.  He's the top rated FB on some boards.  Totally worth one of those 6th round comp picks.

Speaking of Michigan.  I like Chris Evans.  He is gonna make some team very happy.  As far as gurley goes I'd still like to kick the tires on him.

Would be a good pickup, and upgrade from Armah

Don't want Gurley. Too much damage to those knees.  Does not fit with what we are doing here.

The account that said we were looking at Gurley is phony.

The contact with Carson makes me think that we do indeed want a runningback, but there's no actual indication we're talking to Gurley.

Five NFL players still available who could help the Carolina Panthers

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/article250057914.html

Quinton Dunbar, CB (Seattle Seahawks)

The Panthers signed veteran corner Rashaan Melvin to a one-year deal, but help is still needed, especially at starting corner opposite Donte Jackson. With Rasul Douglas and Corn Elder becoming free agents this year, cornerback remains one of the Panthers biggest areas to address, as it was last offseason.

Dunbar, 28, is the lesser of the two Seahawks starting corners that were on the market this offseason — Shaquill Griffin signed a lucrative deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has never played a full 16-game season because of a variety of injuries.

Despite that, Dunbar is just a year removed from a career-best season. In 2019, he had four interceptions in just 11 games played with the Washington Football Team. He has also had at least 30 tackles in each of the past four years. With many of the top defensive backs finding homes elsewhere, the veteran could be a cheaper, short-term answer and continue to add depth to the position.

General manager Scott Fitterer has already added two former Seahawks to the roster, tight end Stephen Sullivan and wide receiver David Moore, and multiple other former NFC West players, including Haason Reddick and Morgan Fox. Continuing to add familiar players wouldn’t be a surprise. He also happens to be new Panthers linebacker Denzel Perryman’s cousin.

Steven Nelson, CB (Pittsburgh Steelers)

Nelson is another corner who could help address a big need. He has reportedly been granted permission to seek a trade from the Steelers, and a trading team would take on over $8 million with one-year left on his contract, per Over the Cap. There’s also a chance he is released, if a trade does not work out.

Over the past three seasons, Nelson, 28, has started a combined 46 games, had seven interceptions and totaled 60-plus tackles twice. His 78.1 overall Pro Football Focus grade since 2019 is tied for 11th-best in the league. Toward the later half of the 2020 season, his performance was a bit inconsistent, but his best season was in 2019 and he has plenty of big-game experience.

One reason why the Panthers might not be interested in Nelson? Length. The Seahawks are known for selecting corners with long arms, over 32 inches, and Fitterer may be looking for a starter with more length than Nelson offers (30.6 inch arms and is 5-foot-11).

Former Tennessee Titans corner Adoree’ Jackson would seemingly make sense for the Panthers, as has been previously indicated, but he’s got multiple visits scheduled elsewhere at the moment.

Jurrell Casey, DT (Denver Broncos)

We need a DT signing before the draft.  Stupid short-handed at that spot, unless anyone is banking on Panasiuk to be a key contributor.  If his name doesn't ring a bell, he was on the practice squad most of last season.  Yeah, that's our #3 DT right now and an injury away for starting.  I'm all for drafting a DT, but I would rather not double dip at that position considering all the needs we still have left to fill in the draft.

I’m with you, but we also desperately need a vet DB

So dumb to wavie Kerr, unless its a injury deal(no reports). Like CB, theres still some players that even normies can recognize. I know about Panasiuk, said to love the weight room and be very strong(like all DL). They chose to wavie Bruce Hector too, he was a philly guy that Pat Steart knew of. Cards traded for him, wavied him, went back to philly, and panthers had him on the PS for the whole year. Didnt resign Hector either, seems they want a different skill set form DT.
