Carolina Panthers sign tight end, raising important question

The Carolina Panthers rookie minicamp saw draft picks, undrafted free agents and a few returnees join a handful of prospects attempting to make the team. For those who didn’t have a contract entering the weekend, all were hopeful to make an impression and earn an opportunity.

Following the draft and initial free agent period, the Panthers had only a handful of roster positions where players have a legitimate opportunity. As general manager Marty Hurney works to construct a competitive roster, there are jobs to be won along both lines, at linebacker, safety and wide receiver, in addition to backup running back and quarterback – yet Carolina added another tight end.
