Panthers Announce Team Captains

The Carolina Panthers have named their 2021 captains.

We are just days away now from the Carolina Panthers opening up the 2021 season at Bank of America Stadium against the New York Jets. The Panthers are looking to do more than just improve on their 5-11 record from a year ago, but to potentially push for a playoff spot.
