The team's candidates for a potential veteran QB has dropped and the Panthers haven't made contact with any of the other QBs, including Baltimore Ravens free agent QBs Trent Dilfer and Tony Banks. There is also no movement on the Steve Beuerlein trade front. The Panthers have one other QB on the roster, Matt Lytle, who spent the 2000 season on the Panthers practice squad after a brief stay with Seattle.
