Only two NFL teams have glaring quarterback issues leading into the start of the 2022 season.
The Carolina Panthers are not convinced that Sam Darnold is their long-term solution under center.
While the former USC standout is still with the squad, they’ve drafted Matt Corral in the third round hoping that he will compete for the starting role.
Aside from those two quarterbacks, the Panthers also have P.J. Walker and undrafted free agent Davis Cheek.
They may also try to bring back former league MVP and franchise icon Cam Newton.
On the other hand, the Seattle Seahawks got five draft picks after trading Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos.
They also received three players in the swap, including quarterback Drew Lock.
However, NFL analyst Ross Tucker feels that changes are bound to happen in the quarterback depth charts of both teams.
I don't believe for a second that the Panthers & Seahawks are going into Week 1 with their current QBs on the roster.

What Can The Panthers And Seahawks Do?
Unfortunately, both teams do not have a lot of players that would spark interest from other franchises.
The Panthers still have running back Christian McCaffrey, but his injury history will discourage potential trade partners.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks also released All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner who joined the Los Angeles Rams.
But Seattle has draft capital from the Wilson trade which they can use to get a quarterback.
Even if they use some of those picks, the market offers limited options.
Otherwise, they may end up trading more than they should just to upgrade at quarterback.
