Running back Chuba Hubbard, a Black player who was coming off a first-team All-America season, suggested he would boycott the program after Gundy was photographed wearing a T-shirt promoting the One America News Network — a far-right news channel that had criticized the Black Lives Matter movement. Hubbard felt wearing the shirt was insensitive just weeks after George Floyd was killed by police and as protests against racial injustice were taking place across the country. Hubbard had support from other players, prompting concerns from the administration.
Upon further review, a blown block for Panthers QB Cam Newton looks even worse than it initially appeared.
Although we are still a month or so away from the offseason, it wouldn't hurt to take a first glance at the 2022 NFL Draft during the Panthers' bye week. Carolina currently holds a 5-7 record which would give them the eighth overall pick if the season were to end today. With the remaining schedule the Panthers have, there's a very good chance they finish the year with just five or six wins.
