The Carolina Panthers suffered through a very tough 2-14 season in 2010. However, they are not a team totally devoid of talent. The Panthers have followed the model of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers by building through the draft.
If they want to continue following that model, they need to re-sign several key veterans who were all drafted by the team over the last five seasons. All five players seem headed towards free agency, but of course, that all depends on the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
