Only two NFL teams have quarterback problems at the start of the 2022 season.
The Carolina Panthers aren’t sure if Sam Darnald is under their long-term solution center.
Although the former USC standout is still with the squad, they have drafted Matt Coral in the third round in the hope that he will compete for the starting role.
In addition to these two quarterbacks, the Panthers also have PJ Walker and undefeated free agent Davis Chick.
They may try to bring back former league MVP and franchise icon Cam Newton.
The Seattle Seahawks, on the other hand, got five draft picks after pro bowling quarterback Russell Wilson traded in the Denver Broncos.
They also got three players in exchange, including quarterback Drew Lock.
He will compete for the opening roles with Zeno Smith, Jacob Eason and Levi Lewis.
However, NFL analyst Ross Tucker believes that the quarterback depth chart of both teams is bound to change.
I can’t believe for a second that the Panthers and Seahawks are going to Week 1 with their current QB on the roster.

Tucker tweeted, “I can’t believe for a second that the Panthers and Seahawks are going to Week 1 with their current QB on the roster.”
What can Panthers and Seahawks do?
Unfortunately, there aren’t many players on either side that would give other franchises interest.
The Panthers are still trailing Christian McCaffrey, but his injury history will discourage potential trade partners.
Seahawks, meanwhile, has released all-pro linebacker Bobby Wagner, who joined the Los Angeles Rams.
But Seattle has draft capital from Wilson Trade that they could use to get quarterbacks.
Even if they use some of these picks, the market offers limited options.
Baker Mayfield and Jimmy Garopolo are the best options they can get.
Otherwise, they may end up trading as little as possible to upgrade to quarterback.
