Dalton is reportedly signing a two-year contract with the Panthers for $10 million. $8 million is fully guaranteed for the quarterback, who will be playing for his fifth team.
In 2022, Dalton played fourteen games for the New Orleans Saints. In those games, he amassed 2,871 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions.
This news was largely expected by many analysts after the Saints signed Derek Carr and re-signed Jameis Winston. Carolina’s draft day decision will largely determine Dalton’s chances of starting in Carolina next year.
