CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers made trades with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans to acquire wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr. and a 2024 draft pick in exchange for a 2023 draft pick and offensive lineman Dennis Daley.
On Monday, the Panthers announced they had acquired Shenault, a third-year player who was one of the Jaguars top receivers in their abysmal 2021 season. The draft pick that the Jaguars will receive from the Panthers is not known at this time.
Shenault had 63 receptions for 619 yards in 2021 for Jacksonville. While Shenault did not catch a touchdown last year, he was 2nd on the team for receptions and yards. Shenault led the team with 58 receptions and five touchdowns in his rookie year of 2020, though.
The player can add strength to the Panthers receiving corps that's spearheaded by DJ Moore and Robbie Anderson.
Ben McAdoo, the Panthers offensive coordinator, previously worked with Shenault when he was Jacksonville's quarterbacks coach in 2020.
Shenault was likely ousted from the Jaguars as the team looks to see what they can get from Christian Kirk, Zay Jones, and Tim Jones, who were all brought in over the offseason.
Also on Monday, the Panthers stated they had traded away Dennis Daley, an offensive lineman, and a 2024 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2024 fifth-round pick.
Daley started at tackle in nine games for the Panthers in 2021. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of South Carolina. Daley started 21 games during his time with the Panthers.
The Panthers need to cut at least 27 players from their roster by Tuesday at 4 p.m., which is when each team needs to finalize its 53-man roster.
Carolina's regular season opens on Sept. 11 against the Cleveland Browns at Bank of America Stadium. The team is looking to improve in its third year under head coach Matt Rhule. The Panthers have finished the last three seasons with five wins and have not made the postseason since 2017.
