The Panthers are gearing up for an offensive explosion in 2017.
Last year the Panthers were crushed by injuries and poor play. On offense, bad play by the offensive line and hurt players led to an ugly season.
The Panthers are looking to change that by resigning wide receiver Brenton Bersin to a one year contract. Bersin is a solid receiver with three years working with Cam Newton and the Panthers. Like many players he was not that productive last season, but is poised for a great year.

In three seasons, Bersin has 287 yards receiving and also can return punts and kickoffs in a pinch. Having been hit by so many injuries, having a versatile player to fill in on offense or special teams can help a team when the injury bug hits. At 6’3” he’s big enough to really push back against smaller corner backs, and Newton can rely on him should Ted Ginn not resign. His price tag is low (probably less than $1.7 million) so he’ll be able to fill a need without breaking the bank.
Is Bersin a quality signing, or are you dying for the team to find a high quality, high flying wide receiver who can light of opposing defenses?
