Complete list of Panthers 2023 free agents


CHARLOTTE — At the conclusion of the 2022 season, the Panthers now have 16 players eligible for unrestricted free agency.

That includes four current starters — quarterback Sam Darnold, center Bradley Bozeman, running back D'Onta Foreman, and defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis.

The quarterback depth chart could be in significant flux, as injured rookie Matt Corral is the only one under contract for next season. Current backup PJ Walker will be a restricted free agent.

Here's a look at the complete list of players whose contracts expire after the season:


QB Sam Darnold

WR Rashard Higgins

WR Andre Roberts

RB D'Onta Foreman

DE Henry Anderson

DT Matt Ioannidis

* Players become unrestricted free agents if they have four or more accrued seasons when their contract expires. Restricted free agents have three accrued seasons, and exclusive rights free agents have two or fewer accrued seasons. The Panthers can tender a contract and then match any offer made by another team to their restricted free agents, while exclusive rights free agents will either be offered and accept a contract from the Panthers or not be offered a contract and become a free agent.
