2. Marquez Valdes-Scantling - WR

Marquez Valdes-Scantling has spent his entire career playing with either Aaron Rodgers or Patrick Mahomes. He has seen how greatness operates and while he endured a miserable 2023 regular season, he routinely stepped up in big moments to become a playoff hero in Kansas City.

Few receivers are better equipped to help Bryce Young develop into the superstar Carolina hopes he'll become. Valdes-Scantling also fits the mold of a receiver the Panthers lack: a vertical deep threat.

Adam Thielen and Diontae Johnson are precise route-runners but primarily get their targets underneath and by finding soft spots in coverage. Getting a speedster like Valdes-Scantling could help open up defenses, finding even more room for the other wideouts to operate.

Given the underwhelming 2023 season, during which Valdes-Scantling caught just 21 passes for 315 yards and one TD, he doesn't seem to have much market value.

Dan Morgan could likely get Valdes-Scantling on a low-cost deal to complete the receiver room, giving him a chance to shine as a focal point of the offense in hopes of a bigger payday down the road.

It's not the sexiest signing, but the two-time Super Bowl champion could certainly help the Panthers' rebuilding efforts.
