Panthers reportedly expected to sign former Broncos LB Justin Strnad

The Carolina Panthers are making things even more familiar for defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero.

As first reported by Joe Person of The Athletic on Tuesday evening, the team is expected to sign free-agent linebacker Justin Strnad. Strnad, who comes over from the Denver Broncos, played the 2022 season under Evero.

Denver selected the Wake Forest University product in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL draft. After sitting out what would have been his rookie campaign due to a wrist injury, Strnad debuted in the 2021 season—where he made five starts over 16 contests.

Strnad posted 36 combined tackles and a quarterback hit that year, both of which remain as career-highs. He played exclusively on special teams for the Broncos in 2022 and 2023.

Right around the time of Person’s report, the Panthers announced another addition—former Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver David Moore. Moore returns for a second stint with the organization.
