There have been a lot of rumors around the future for Carolina and what the team’s future will look like, espedcially at the quarterback position. We’ve all seen the social media campaigns to bring Deshaun Watson to Carolina. How much stock should we put in to that speculation though?

With Christian McCaffrey coming off a season ending injury, he finds himself standing alone with Mike Davis expected to hit the free agent market. What happens to him, and what does the reshaping of this franchise continue to look like as head coach Matt Rhule goes into his second year with the team. Will Teddy Bridgewater remain at quarterback, or is that the first change Rhule makes?

The Panthers have remained fairly quiet, aside from some noise for Watson and McCaffrey restructuring his contract. There expectation still remains to continue building the defense around Jeremy Chinn, as they head into another season in a competitive NFC South division.

The recent news around Brady, David, and Godwin has shaken things up a bit as the Bucs continue to surprise people across the league. It raises even more questions about what the team will do with Ndamukong Suh and Shaquil Barrett. On top of that, there are now rumors simmering around One Buc Place about Odell Beckham Jr.

On this week’s episode of the Bucs Nation Podcast, I’m joined by writer and social media coordinator for The Cat Scratch Reader, and co-host of Keep Sounding Podcast, Brian Beversluis. Brian peels back the curtain a little bit and provides some insight behind enemy lines with the Carolina Panthers.
