The full list includes:
Elflein, 27, is a former third-round pick of the Vikings back in 2017. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.74 million contract and set to make a base salary of $899,500 for the 2020 season when the Vikings waived him after one game.
He was claimed by the Jets and played out the rest of the 2020 season in New York. He signed a three-year, $13.5 million deal with the Panthers that included $6 million guaranteed this past offseason.
In 2021, Elflein has appeared in seven games for the Panthers, making seven starts between guard and center. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 34 center out of 38 qualifying players.
