Paradis finished the 2018 season rated as the second best center in the NFL by analytics site Pro Football Focus and shores up a Panthers offensive line that lost five-time Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil to retirement this offseason.
Speaking to NFL Network on Tuesday, Paradis said he is “ahead of schedule” in his recovery from a fractured fibula that sidelined him for last half of 2018 and expects to be fully cleared in June.
A sixth-round pick out of Boise State in 2014, Paradis started all 57 games he played in for the Broncos, including a victory over the Panthers in Super Bowl 50.
