Another downtrodden team; another team with woes along the offensive line.
The Carolina Panthers are the worst example of what can happen when things fall apart up front. Quarterback Cam Newton is a question mark for next season after January shoulder surgery. And last year, once the line play collapsed, the team bumbled to a 1-7 record.
Where to start? Daryl Williams missed most of last season at right tackle with a torn MCL and is a free agent. Ryan Kalil retired. Then there's Matt Kalil, who struggled at left tackle after he inked a five-year deal worth $55 million and then missed all of last season with a knee injury.
Kalil is a liability with a big contract, and if the Panthers don't move on, shifting him out of the blindside role would be best. The Panthers need to upgrade both tackle spots and at least one interior position, meaning free-agent acquisitions and getting some developmental guys via the draft will be the key to righting the ship.
