Washington signing William Jackson III represents a small but stark contrast to how Ron Rivera's past teams were built. Rivera didn't control personnel in Carolina -- Hurney, Gettleman, Hurney again -- but the team never spent big on CBs. (1/6)
Over the Cap positional spending data goes back to 2013, Rivera's third year with the Panthers. Carolina's annual cap allocation to CBs during his tenure vs. leaguewide allocation, ranked: 32nd, 32nd, 29th, 32nd, 27th, 24th, 29th. (2/6)
Carolina wasn't bad at developing CBs either. Team didn't retain good, young ones during that time -- Captain Munnerlyn ('13) and Josh Norman ('16) -- and another, James Bradberry ('20), departed after Rivera was fired but Hurney remained the GM. (3/6)
