Andy Dalton is a Panther

Recommended Posts

Panthers signed QB Andy Dalton, formerly of the Saints, to a two-year, $10 million contract. 

The deal includes $8 million "fully guaranteed" and apparently includes another $7 million in incentives. Although Dalton will ultimately end up the clipboard holder for whomever the Panthers take at No. 1 overall, he could end up the "bridge" starter if the top selection is a raw prospect like Florida's Anthony Richardson. For now, it appears the Panthers are eyeing up Ohio State's C.J. Stroud, who would have an easier time easily dispatching Dalton. The computers liked Dalton in 2022, but his already modest deep game has disappeared. He failed as a bridge man for the 2021 Bears. The Panthers need to avoid 2023 Dalton starts at all costs unless it is to protect an unprepared rookie.

Think it's set up to really be a one year deal, guaranteed money from signing bonus and first year salary low. Cap hit probably 6m or so. 


Leaving the Panthers with around 19m in cap, so 7m to work with after rookies are considered.
