The Carolina Panthers made some wholesale changes in the offseason, hiring Dave Canales as their new head coach and trading star pass rusher Brian Burns to the New York Giants. 

The loss of Burns will be an adjustment for the Panthers’ defense as he accounted for eight sacks last season and 46 in his Carolina career. To help with the departure of Burns, Carolina added former Jacksonville Jaguars first-round pick K’Lavon Chaisson and former Baltimore Ravens EDGE Jadeveon Clowney.

Clowney, a Rock Hill, South Carolina native, is coming off an outstanding 2023 season with the Ravens. The veteran defensive end rebounded with 43 combined tackles, 19 quarterback hits, 9.5 sacks, and nine tackles for loss.

The Panthers signed Clowney to a two-year, $20 million deal in March and hope he can build off what he did with the Ravens last season. Speaking of Clowney, Carolina fans had a chance to see the veteran defensive end in his new threads for the first time.

In a photo posted by the NFL’s official Twitter account, Clowney is rocking the No. 7 jersey, pictured alongside teammate Jaycee Horn, who also went to the University of South Carolina like the veteran EDGE.

If the No. 7 jersey looks familiar, Clowney wore that number at South Carolina, where he was wreaking havoc on opposing teams’ offensive lines. One of Clowney’s most memorable plays wearing No. 7 was when he destroyed Michigan’s Vincent Smith in the backfield in the 2013 Outback Bowl.

The Panthers hope Clowney can bring that passion and energy to their defense this coming season as they try to improve from last year’s 2-15 record.
