here are 11 players in super bowl lviiii with ties to nc, sc and the carolina panthers
Here’s a look at 11 players (and a few others) who will played roles in Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, where the Kansas City Chiefs beat San Francisco 25-22.


********
Christain McCaffrey
McCaffrey was traded to the 49ers in 2022 and has reemerged, in many ways, as the McCaffrey of old — the one who’d recorded 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards in 2019 before injuries hindered his five-season career in Carolina. McCaffrey had 1,459 rushing yards and 14 rushing touchdowns plus 564 receiving yards and seven receiving touchdowns.
Sam McDonald
Darnold is in a QB2 role for the surging Brock Purdy-led 49ers offense. He started in Carolina for two seasons (2021-22) before agreeing to a one-year deal with San Francisco. He helped rebuild his career at the end of his tenure as a Panther, when he helped lead a team with an interim head coach to a 4-2 finish, throwing for 1,143 yards and seven touchdowns in that six-game stretch.
Justin Ross
Ross has played in 10 games this NFL season and has notched six receptions on a 11 targets for 53 yards. The former Clemson star signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chiefs in 2022 and was placed on injured reserve due to an offseason foot injury that year.
Joshua Williams
Williams, in his second NFL season, has notched 18 tackles and five pass deflections for the Chiefs this season. He also played for Kansas City in the team’s Super Bowl run last year. The Fayetteville native graduated from Fayetteville State and was subsequently drafted in the fourth round of the 2022 draft.
Deebo Samuel
Samuel is one of the most elusive and dynamic players in the NFL. The San Francisco star is a University of South Carolina graduate and Inman, S.C., native. He had 1,117 yards from scrimmage and 12 total touchdowns (seven receiving, five rushing).
Ray-Ray McCloud III
McCloud has played for four different teams in his six seasons in the NFL. And the Panthers, in 2019, were one of them. More significantly, the 49ers’ receiver/returner played three seasons at Clemson before being drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s notched 12 catches for 135 yards this season.

panthers julius peppers overcame 'skepticism' to reach hof
Peppers left Carolina following his eighth season, as the Panthers opted not to use the franchise tag on their 6-foot-7, 295-pound star for the second straight year when negotiations on a long-term deal failed. Peppers eventually returned to Carolina for his final two seasons (2017-18) after spending time with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. He finished with 159.5 sacks, which ranks fourth in NFL history behind Bruce Smith (200), Reggie White (198) and Kevin Greene (160).

brian burns , frankie luvu among panthers' top free agents
Just like last year, Burns believes he should be among the highest-paid edge rushers in the NFL even after having a down season with eight sacks a year after having a career-high 12.5. - Luvu is coming off a career-high 111 tackles and seven sacks. He fits the "dawg'' mentality that Morgan said he is looking for. He is also somebody Burns wants as a teammate.

panthers coach dave canales on plan for bryce young's rebound
The bottom line is Canales doesn't want to overcomplicate the offense, as often seemed the case last season. Young finished tied for the fewest touchdown passes (11) for any quarterback in NFL history with more than 500 pass attempts, and the Panthers' offense finished in the bottom five of the league in most major categories, including scoring (tied for 31st, 13.9 points per game) and total offense (32nd, 265.3 yards per game).

panthers use franchise tag on pass rusher brian burns
The Panthers attempted to sign Burns to a long-term deal following the 2022 season when he had a career-high 12.5 sacks and was named to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year. Talks broke down before the 2023 season.



********
Burns, 25, also acknowledged that his sack total was impacted by Carolina, with a league-worst 2-15 record, not holding the lead in the fourth quarter. His 46 sacks the last five seasons rank 13th in the NFL during that time span.

Sources: Panthers to release center Bradley Bozeman​


Center will be a top priority for the Carolina Panthers when they enter free agency this week. The team plans to release starting center Bradley Bozeman when the NFL's new year begins Wednesday, multiple league sources told ESPN on Sunday. The release is performance-based and not a cap-saving move. Bozeman is due a $1.5 million signing bonus on March 16. His release will save only $360,000 and create $7,280,000 in dead money.

Bozeman will be released because of his ineffectiveness in pass protection, which led to rookie quarterback Bryce Young being sacked 62 times, second only to am Howell of the Washington Commanders in 2023. Bozeman allowed eight sacks, first among centers, according to Pro Football Focus.Bozeman was Carolina's 2023 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award nominee.

Did Panthers make mistake trading up to take Bryce Young?​


The buzz at last year's NFL combine was that the Houston Texans wanted to trade with the Chicago Bears to move from second to first overall in the draft to select Alabama quarterback Bryce Young. The Carolina Panthers were looking to move from ninth to second or third and take one of the top three quarterbacks, believing Young was the best of the lot. The Panthers also met with free agent quarterback Derek Carr in Indianapolis. And they spoke with the Baltimore Ravens about free agent Lamar Jackson with a dollar figure in mind they wouldn't exceed if a sign-and-trade deal could be reached, according to a source with knowledge of the talks. But ultimately their target was Young, who was considered the top choice over Ohio State's C.J. Stroud by most teams despite his 5-foot-10, 204-pound frame that fell well below the NFL standards.

Young then had one of the worst years in NFL history for a quarterback taken No. 1, and Carolina had an NFL-worst 2-15 record. Stroud, taken No. 2 by the Texans, had a historic rookie campaign-- 4,108 yards, 23 touchdowns, 5 interceptions -- was named NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year and led the Texans to the playoffs with a 10-7 record. Does that mean the Panthers made a huge mistake in trading two first-round picks (2023, 2024) and top wide receiver DJ Moore for the right to draft Young? Not according to NFL executives, coaches and scouts at last week's combine. Most agreed that Carolina's spread offense -- orchestrated by coach Frank Reich, who was fired after a 1-10 start -- lacked the personnel, from offensive line to tight end to wide receiver, to be successful.

Panthers reach deal with pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney​


Free agent pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney has agreed to a contract with the Carolina Panthers, the team announced Wednesday. Terms were not disclosed but sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Clowney agreed to a two-year, $20 million contract that can be worth up to $24 million. Clowney will receive bonuses for reaching 8, 10 and 12 sacks in each season, a league source told ESPN's David Newton. For Clowney, this is a homecoming. He is a native of Rock Hill, South Carolina, about 25 minutes south of Charlotte where he starred at South Pointe High School. He also attended the University of South Carolina, about 90 minutes south of Charlotte. Clowney is a three-time Pro Bowl player who has totaled 363 tackles, 52.5 sacks and 15 forced fumbles in 10 seasons. After spending his first five seasons with the Texans, he has played for four teams in his last five seasons (the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, Browns and Ravens).

Will Diontae Johnson help fix Bryce Young, Panthers' offense?​


The Carolina Panthers knew former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Diontae Johnson came with some baggage when they traded for him, but his ability to create separation and give second-year quarterback Bryce Young a legitimate No. 1 target far outweighed the negatives. "His release ability is second to none,'' first-year head coach Dave Canales told reporters on Tuesday at the NFL owners meeting in Orlando. "And then at the top of the route, his deceleration, the way he's able to really explode out of his routes, it's a dream for any quarterback.''

Young lived a nightmare in 2023 after Carolina selected him with the No. 1 overall pick of the draft. Beyond being sacked a team-record 62 times, his receivers struggled to get open. Johnson ranked 12th last season in open score (79), and over the past two seasons, his open score of 94 is the best in the NFL. No Carolina receiver ranked in the top 40 over that two-year span. Thielen's open score of 59 with the Minnesota Vikings in 2022 and Panthers in 2023 ranks 47th.

With a "good foundation" in place, Panthers are ready to see where O-line and Bryce Young can go​


For as much as things change in football, to Harold Goodwin, there is one outstanding truth. "I believe any offensive line on any football team is the foundation to the team," he said. Goodwin was meeting with local media on Tuesday, his first time since being named the assistant head coach and run game coordinator for the Panthers. His declaration about the offensive line extended beyond just the running game though, but to what a football team can do as a whole. "I'm excited for the group. Obviously, you've got five guys that can play at a high level. The biggest thing, knock on wood, we've just got to stay healthy," Goodwin said. "All of those guys are high quality players, Pro Bowl-level players, not to put pressure on any of them, but I expect big things from that group to help this team out." And if the offensive line is the foundation of any team, Goodwin is encouraged by what the Panthers have put together; "I feel like we've got a good start to a good foundation to the future."

As the updated line presumably gives Young more protection, offensive coordinator Brad Idzik expects to see more of the Young he scouted while coaching last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "As we go and he shows us on the field here, this off-season, we'll continue to build on the fundamentals. Will Harriger, one of the most prepared quarterback's coaches you'll ever come across, has examples of everything and he's showing it to him on the daily. And then I can't wait to watch him get his hands dirty with him on the field, just honing in on all the fundamentals, the footwork, and then just being on time with the wide outs."
