Picking 1 Free Agent to Fill Each of Carolina Panthers' Holes

While the start of free agency has been exciting for some fanbases, that has not been the case for Carolina Panthers fans. 

Due to an unfavorable cap situation, first-year GM David Gettleman has had no choice but to watch as other teams signed this year's premium free agents. That may not be a bad thing, however, as championship-caliber teams are built through the draft. 

That said, savvy GM's find ways to address priorities through free agency without negatively impacting the future of the franchise financially. Making a significant move or two without cap flexibility is the task that sits in front of Gettleman. 

According to Spotrac.com, the Panthers are $6,738,740 under the cap, with only seven NFL teams having less cap space. 

After working tirelessly to get the Panthers under the salary cap while maintaining a competitive roster, Gettleman's first free agency period as a GM will be equally as difficult. 

The Panthers will work to fill their holes via free agency and the draft, which means only a few glaring needs will be addressed this month.
