“The working theory is that the Carolina Panthers ultimately address quarterback by adding another veteran. Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo stated this week that Sam Darnold is the starting quarterback — before trying to walk that statement back a bit — and there have been lots of stories about how the organization is looking to add a veteran passer, whether Jimmy Garoppolo or Baker Mayfield.
“If quarterback is not the position they address, then offensive line will be. Charles Cross looks every bit the part of a starting left tackle on Sundays, and whether it is Darnold, Mayfield, Garoppolo or me under center for the Panthers next year, they need help up front.
“(If it is me, I’m truly sorry Panthers fans).” – Mark Schofield
