Having acquired Sam Darnold, the Carolina Panthers are expected to move on from Teddy Bridgewater this offseason.

The Panthers have reportedly given Bridgewater permission to speak with other teams to help facilitate a potential trade.

Bridgewater is due a base salary of $17 million in 2021, with $10 million guaranteed. He has two years remaining on his current contract with the Panthers, including a $20 million salary due in 2022.
