Only New England (15) had fewer receptions to tight ends than Carolina (27) last year. In Joe Brady's first year as the Panthers offensive coordinator he rarely utilized the tight end position as a weapon on offense. Ian Thomas accounted for 20 of the team's 27 receptions to the position. That could change in 2021 due to the acquisition of free agent tight end Dan Arnold. The 26 year-old, 6'6, 220-pound Arnold is coming off his best performance in his three years in the league where he totaled 31 receptions on 45 targets for 438 yards and 4 touchdowns for Arizona. Arnold has experience with Joe Brady from his stint in New Orleans in 2018. He is expected to be a fixture in the Panthers offensive plans, especially in the red zone where he can use his size to his advantage. He isn't as big as most tight ends at only 220 pounds, but his 6'6 height and 4.63 40-time makes him a glorified big wide receiver. One who could come in handy for a Panthers team who finished 28th in red zone scoring efficiency in 2020, converting 51% of their 3.6 red zone opportunities per week.
