Football Players who Played for Commanders and Panthers

There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players who have played for both the Washington Commanders and Carolina Panthers.

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a bit of help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the Commanders and Panthers.

Kyle Allen

Kyle Allen entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2018. Despite going undrafted, he managed to make a name for himself relatively quickly. Allen signed with the Carolina Panthers and got his first real opportunity to start in the 2019 season when Cam Newton was sidelined with an injury.

He started off strong, but his performance waned as the season progressed. Allen was traded to the Washington Football Team (formerly known as the Washington Redskins) in 2020, reuniting him with his former coach Ron Rivera.

Over the course of his NFL career, Allen has shown flashes of promise but has been inconsistent at times. His stats aren’t particularly eye-popping, but he has proven to be a serviceable backup and spot starter in the league.

  • 3000+ Yard Passing Season (Panthers)

Trai Turner

Trai Turner was selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He played college football at LSU before making the jump to the pros. Turner quickly established himself as a reliable presence on the offensive line and became one of the better guards in the league during his time with the Panthers.

He spent six seasons with the Panthers and made five consecutive Pro Bowl appearances from 2015 to 2019. In 2020, he was traded to the Los Angeles Chargers, where he played for one season followed by a season with the Steelers and then Commanders.

During his time in Carolina, Turner was a key component of a Panthers offense that made it to the Super Bowl in the 2015 season, although they ultimately lost to the Denver Broncos.

Eric Metcalf

Eric Metcalf was selected as the 13th overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. He played in the NFL for 13 seasons, with stints at 7 different teams including the Browns, Falcons, Chargers, Cardinals, Panthers, Redskins, and Packers.

Metcalf was primarily utilized as a return specialist and running back. His versatility and speed made him a significant threat in special teams. Over his career, he recorded almost 8,000 rushing and receiving yards, but his most remarkable achievements came as a return specialist, where he scored 12 return touchdowns.

He was named to three Pro Bowls and earned two 1st Team All-Pro selections. His ability to change games with his special teams play made him one of the most exciting players to watch during his career.

Metcalf Key Stats

  • 1st Team All-Pro (Browns, Chargers)
  • Pro Bowl (Browns, Chargers)
  • 1000+ Receiving Yard Season (Falcons)

Rodney Peete

Rodney Peete is a former quarterback who had a long career in the NFL. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 6th round of the 1989 NFL Draft.

Peete played for the Lions from 1989 to 1993 and would go on to play for several other NFL teams including the Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins, Raiders, and Panthers. Over the course of his career, Peete threw for more than 16,000 yards and 76 touchdowns.

While he never made it to a Pro Bowl, Peete was a reliable starter for several years, particularly during his time with the Lions. His longevity in the league is a rarity for a player who was not a high draft pick.
