Brady, 32, joined the staff of the Panthers in 2020 after helping LSU to a perfect season and a national championship in 2019. last season.
On Sunday, the Panthers’ offense came in 28th in yards per game and 23rd in points to 12 games. The team has used three different quarterbacks in Sam Darnold (still on injured reserve), PJ Walker and Cam Newton.
