Carolina Panthers Announce They've Relieved GM Dave Gettleman Of His Duties

Whoever is hired to replace Gettleman will be the third general manager whom head coach Ron Rivera will have worked with, as he was already in his position when Gettleman was hired.

Carolina hasn't announced a replacement for Gettleman, and after a 6-10 campaign in 2016, it enters the 2017 season with more questions than answers. Carolina will now attempt to find another GM with training camp barely a week away. This year, it has not been a good one for general managers around the league. The Panthers have played four home playoff games during Gettleman's tenure and won three postseason games. At the time of his release, Williams told WBTV Charlotte that he was OK with the team's decision because of the way he and his family were treated when Williams' mother died of breast cancer. Beane would have been a natural choice to take Gettleman's place, but Carolina will have to go in another direction now. Last offseason, Carolina pulled the franchise tag off All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman and opted to let him test the free-agent market. Overall, Gettleman has been a part of seven Super Bowl teams, including three winners. The team was also involved in negotiations with Greg Olsen and Thomas Davis regarding potential new contracts. He was with the Buffalo Bills in 1990 and 1991, the Denver Broncos in 1997 and the New York Giants in 200, 2007 and 2011, before joining the Panthers.
