But he’s moved on from that now.

The Carolina Panthers strengthened their running back competition throughout the summer, which put Sanders on the outside looking in. The former NFL player isn’t escaping the competition, though. He’s accepting it.

Sanders stated, “We all strive to assist one another in learning the playbook and making sure we all know our stuff when we get out there.” Since I first came here a year ago, we have gotten along well. Beginning with Chuba and Raheem, we now have Jonathon and Penny in the mix. The guys are excellent. Everyone gets along just great. We are in competition.”

Sanders had a dismal 2023 season for a variety of reasons. Ineffective offensive line play. Accidents. absence of a passing game to relieve ground-based output burden. All of these contributed to Sanders’ sloppy play.

In 2024, that needs to change. However, Sanders’ situation might alter even if he isn’t wearing a Panthers uniform.

Sanders received a hefty salary from Carolina in the 2023 offseason. The veteran running back signed a four-year, $25 million contract with the Panthers. That is a high cost for a running back who scored only one touchdown on the ground last season.

Through the draft, Carolina also added Jonathan Brooks as a running back, which put Sanders in the outside looking in.

Nevertheless, he is in competition with everyone else in an attempt to make the roster. Sanders seems prepared for whatever may occur, regardless of the circumstances.

“I’m just blessed to still be here,” he replied. “It’s year six and I’m ready to go.”

Chuba Hubbard seems to be quickly becoming the team’s starting quarterback right now.
