The Carolina Panthers needed quite a bit of paper and ink for this particular offseason, or at least more than they normally would. But, hopefully, none of it will go to waste from here on out for any of their 11 draft picks.

On Thursday, the team announced that they have come to terms with tight end Tommy Tremble, making him the final rookie from this year’s class to officially sign his first NFL contract. Carolina’s 11 selections were not only tied for the most in 2021 (Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings), but also tied a franchise-record that stood since their inaugural draft of 1995.

Tremble was plucked out of the University of Notre Dame by the Panthers in the third round with the 83rd overall pick. Although the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder was primarily used as a blocker in his pair of seasons for the Fighting Irish, his athleticism and raw potential has coaches forecasting a considerable impact from their new weapon in the near future.

Carolina fielded the league’s worst production at the position this past season, with the team’s tight ends only going for a combined 207 yards and two touchdowns. Tremble, along with free-agent signing Dan Arnold and now fourth-year veteran Ian Thomas, will look to change that in 2021.
