    Upgrading the quarterback position and rebuilding an offensive line that has only one starter under contract is the priority.

But Watson, the former Clemson star, would be worth taking a chance.

    The Panthers aren’t wrong to be interested in a quarterback that can help the team in the long-term. Teddy Bridgewater is not viewed as the future, so a solution is needed. But that doesn’t mean that there should be no limit, no check, on how much the team would give up to get him.
