CHARLOTTE — The Panthers announced their list of eight captains for the 2022 season on Thursday, and it's a familiar-looking list.
Running back Christian McCaffrey leads the group of eight players, making this his fourth year with a C on his jersey. Likewise, linebacker Shaq Thompson's a captain for the third year, as the two veterans have led their respective sides of the ball throughout the offseason.
Offensive tackle Taylor Moton, cornerback Donte Jackson, defensive end Brian Burns, and long snapper JJ Jansen are returning as captains for the second straight year.
Safety Jeremy Chinn and quarterback Baker Mayfield round out the list as first-time team captains here, which was voted on by players.
Mayfield previously served as a team captain in Cleveland.
Carolina announced the 2022 captains are Christian McCaffrey, Baker Mayfield, Taylor Moton, Shaq Thompson, Jeremy Chinn, Brian Burns, Donte Jackson and J.J. Jansen.
