Adam Thielen isn’t the only free agent wide receiver on the radar in Carolina.

According to multiple reports, DJ Chark will be paying the team a visit on Friday. Thielen met with the Panthers on Wednesday, but there’s been no word on movement toward a contract.

Chark moved from the Jaguars to the Lions last offseason and played in 11 games for his new team. He caught 30 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns during his time in Detroit.

The Panthers traded DJ Moore to the Bears as part of their trade for the first overall pick and that’s left them thin at wide receiver. Signing Chark would be one way to beef up the receiving corps heading into the rest of the offseason.

  1. Between former coaches and players, the Panthers are becoming the Detroit Lions (South)

  2. Was hoping the Vikings would pick him up, but I imagine he’d be too expensive even as a WR2 with their cap space.

  3. Would love to see him come back to Detroit for depth, but he was injured a lot

  4. Their playbook has a lot of plays that say “throw it to DJ,” so this signing would make sense from a continuity perspective.

  5. Feels like his market isn’t developing that much. Wouldn’t be surprised if he signs another short term deal.
