The Carolina Panthers have been one of the busiest teams in the NFL throughout the offseason.
Between signing countless free agents, and hopefully drafting a new franchise quarterback, the Panthers look to make a significant leap this year.
According to a recent update from Adam Schefter, the Panthers continued their offseason frenzy, re-signing Cam Erving to a one-year deal.
Former first-round pick Cam Erving, who spent the past two seasons in Carolina, is re-signing with the Panthers on a one-year deal, per source.

As Schefter mentions, Erving was the No. 15 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, where he was selected by the Cleveland Browns.
Before joining the Panthers, Erving also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys.
Heading into his age-31 season, Erving seemingly has one more opportunity to prove himself in the league, potentially eyeing another extension.
As a member of the Panthers’ offensive line, Erving will be tasked with protecting Bryce Young, the organization’s shiny new toy.
Young was a highly regarded quarterback prospect heading into this draft, and the team has continued to build the offense around him.
Whether Young has success in his first season will be largely dependent on his offensive line.
Despite Young’s pre-draft profile, protecting a new quarterback isn’t easy.
A new quarterback signals the beginning of a brand-new offense, which is usually accompanied by growing pains.
The NFC South is slated to look significantly different in 2023 than it did in 2022.
Each team is likely to have a new starting quarterback at the helm, leaving the division to be open for the taking.
