Carolina Panthers Part Ways With Dave Gettleman

Carolina Panthers Part Ways With Dave Gettleman

In Gettleman's tenure as GM, the Panthers missed the playoffs just once (2016) and appeared in Super Bowl 50 in the 2015-16 season.

Williams, now a free agent, had recently told ESPN's Adam Schefter that there were four teams he would not consider playing for - the Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and the Panthers. "While the timing of this decision is not ideal, a change is needed".

Before joining Carolina, Gettleman spent almost 30 years in National Football League scouting departments. Carolina finished 15-1 record that season.
