Tommy Tremble, TE

It has been clear ever since Morgan and Canales were hired that one of the main priorities for the Panthers was going to be adding more offensive weapons for Bryce Young. Having arguably the worst pass-catching unit in the league in 2023, the Panthers were dead set on adding more dynamic playmakers to see what Young was capable of.

Therefore, they added Diontae Johnson in the offseason and drafted Xavier Legette in the first round. They now have a much better wide receiver corps with Adam Thielen, Jonathan Mingo, Johnson, and Legette.

Now they need to address the tight end. Tommy Tremble is certainly not the biggest problem on the Panthers. If anything, he has been consistently fine ever since he was drafted in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. His year-to-year production is remarkably consistent, along the lines of his 2023 numbers: 23 catches, 194 yards, and three touchdowns. He was the 52nd-ranked tight end in the league according to PFF.

That is alright for a TE2 but leaves plenty to be desired for TE1. Carolina should look for upgrades there with Ja'Tavion Sanders of Texas, Cade Stover of Ohio State, and Ben Sinnott of Kansas State on the board as the best remaining tight ends. Adding one of them would push Tremble into a role both he and the Panthers should be more comfortable with.
