With training camp just over a week away, the Panthers head into the 2017 season with plenty of uncertainty in the front office.

"After much thought and a long evaluation of our football operations, I have chose to relieve Dave Gettleman of his duties as General Manager", owner Jerry Richardson said in a statement.

After making and losing the Super Bowl to the Denver Broncos in 2015, the Panthers struggled in 2016, following up a 15-1 campaign with a 6-10 season.

Despite the on-field success, the Panthers struggled to retain popular veterans under Gettleman.


"After much thought and a long evaluation of our football operations, I have chose to relieve Dave Gettleman of his duties as general manager", team owner Jerry Richardson said in a release.

The Carolina Panthers have fired general manager Dave Gettleman after four seasons, the team announced Monday.

Gettleman had served as general manager since 2013. He was a contender for the Giants' GM job when Ernie Accorsi retired, but the position ultimately went to Jerry Reese, who still holds it. Last year, Gettleman was unable to come to a contract agreement with franchise player cornerback Josh Norman.

Gettleman has two Super Bowl rings for his time with the Giants. Norman then became a free agent and signed with the Redskins. Richardson also acknowledged the timing is not ideal as the Panthers are scheduled to report to camp on July 26.
