Carolina Panthers' 53-man roster projection: Jeremy Chinn, A.J. Bouye help flexible defense

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers open the 2021 NFL regular season against the New York Jets on Sept. 12 at Bank of America Stadium. The Panthers finished 2020 with a 5-11 record, third in the NFC South, missing the playoffs for the third consecutive season.

This will be a chance for quarterback Sam Darnold, acquired in an offseason trade with the Jets, to prove himself immediately -- or prove New York was right in moving on from the third pick of the 2018 draft in favor of Zach Wilson.
