The biggest mistakes of the 2016 NFL off-season

The Panthers rescinded their franchise tag offer to cornerback Josh Norman because they couldn’t agree to terms on a long-term deal, and he signed with Washington less than a week later. Carolina turned to the draft for help, selecting cornerbacks James Bradberry, Daryl Worley and Zack Sanchez with three of its first four picks. The Panthers have fallen from No. 11 to No. 26 against the pass and allowed Atlanta’s Julio Jones 300 yards in Week 4. “It was a little bit of a roll of the dice I guess to go with younger cornerbacks this season,” coach Ron Rivera told reporters earlier this fall. Um, yeah, little bit. - John De Petro for The MMQB
