Tilis has developed a reputation in Kansas City as the salary cap and contract specialist, crafting creative solutions to complex issues. He worked closely with general manager Brett Veach on structuring contracts and even helped put together the unique 10-year deal for star quarterback Patrick Mahomes in 2020.

Panthers Poach Top Chiefs Executive

The Carolina Panthers have their sights set on Kansas City Chiefs executive Brandt Tilis. While no contract can officially be signed until the Chiefs’ season ends, Tilis is expected to take a prominent front office role in Carolina alongside new general manager Dan Morgan.

Packing His Bags

According to NFL reporter Albert Breer, Tilis has already cleaned out his office in Kansas City. Breer also notes that Tilis did not attend the Chiefs’ recent playoff game against the Buffalo Bills and won’t be at the AFC Championship versus the Baltimore Ravens.

A 14-Year Chiefs Veteran

Tilis has spent the past 14 seasons with the Chiefs organization. He originally joined in 2010 as a salary cap and contract analyst. His skills and talents eventually earned him a promotion in 2014 to Director of Salary Cap and Football Operations Analytics. Just three years later in 2017, he moved up again to Director of Football Administration before landing his most recent gig as Vice President of Football Operations in 2021.

Filling the Void

The impending departure of Tilis leaves big shoes to fill in Kansas City. Expect the Chiefs to promote from within over the summer to help offset the loss of his skills and experience.

Panthers Gain Contract Mastermind

In Carolina, Tilis will pair his salary cap mastery and knack for crafting contracts with Morgan’s personnel evaluation skills. Together, they hope to rebuild the Panthers into a contender.

While football fans in North Carolina wait for sports betting and North Carolina sports betting apps to launch, signing Tilis shows the Panthers are serious about constructing a winner. His deal-making prowess will help them creatively utilize salary cap space to target top free agents. The team surely hopes Tilis’ arrival, along with a North Carolina sportsbook promo or two, will help accelerate their rebuild.

Using a North Carolina BetMGM bonus code to place wagers on a Tilis-improved Panthers squad next season could pay major dividends for savvy bettors. With the Chiefs executive swapping Kansas City for Carolina, the future looks brighter for the Panthers franchise.
