Panthers' defense hopes to 'put on a show' in second season under Phil Snow

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Much of the offseason focus on the Carolina Panthers has been on the trade for quarterback Sam Darnold and return of running back Christian McCaffrey from injuries that forced him to miss 13 games in 2020.

But don’t forget about the defense.

Carolina quietly has put together one of the more versatile units in the NFL, one that can morph from its base 4-3 into a 3-4 or even the 3-5-3 that sacked Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers five times last season without having to substitute personnel.
