5 recent Carolina Panther starts who could win a Super Bowl in 2022
Which players who recently left the Carolina Panthers could end up lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy after the 2022 season?
The Carolina Panthers have seen a lot of roster turnover this offseason as they look to put in place a better foundation for 2022. Matt Rhule has a big job to do next season — the third in his tenure — but the The organization has provided him with impressive talent to nurture in the proper manner and there is also the introduction of coaches with legitimate NFL experience to further aid his cause.
It’s unclear if the cloud hanging over Carolina at quarterback will be the deciding factor. But the Panthers can make another move if they want if Sam Darnold and Matt Corral fail to meet preseason goals.
There have been so many departures over the past two years that it’s sometimes hard to keep track. Some will be missed more than others, so the Panthers need their young core to step up to become competitive for the first time in quite a while.
With that in mind, here are five recent Panther departures who could acquire a Super Bowl ring in 2022.
Former No. 1 Player
RB, Baltimore Ravens
Mike Davis – Former Carolina Panthers RB
It was a brief stint with the Atlanta Falcons for Mike Davis in 2021 after leaving the Carolina Panthers. The running back was deemed surplus to requirements and released this offseason, but he hasn’t been homeless for long and is now joining a rushing Baltimore Ravens offense that is among the most dynamic in the league.
Davis is poised to provide the hard-hitting presence between the tackles behind JK Dobbins, whose expected breakout campaign last season was cut short due to injury. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is also a significant threat outside of the backfield, giving John Harbaugh a productive line to rely on heavily ahead of a possible playoff push.
The AFC North produced a Super Bowl team in the Cincinnati Bengals last season. Davis and the Ravens are hoping for something similar next time around.
