Panthers Sign 10 Undrafted Free Agents

Even though the NFL Draft is over with the Carolina Panthers continued to find ways to improve their roster and have agreed to terms with 10 undrafted free agents.

The Carolina Panthers announced on their team website that they have agreed to terms with 10 undrafted free agents, which are listed below.

Name Position Height Weight College
Brian Blechen LB 6-2 226 Utah
Damiere Byrd WR 5-9 173 South Carolina
Darious Cummings DT 6-1 310 Florida
Dean Marlowe S 6-1 205 James Madison
Arthur Miley DE 6-6 263 Southern
Steve Miller DE 6-3 256 Ohio State
Garry Peters CB 6-0 201 Clemson
Terry Redden DT 6-2 292 Memphis
Brandon Wegher RB 5-10 213 Morningside
Matt Wile P 6-2 223 Michigan

The one thing that is clear from this group of players is the Panthers front office wanted to add depth on the defensive line with two defensive ends and two defensive tackle signings. This was one area the team didn’t address during the Draft itself so it isn’t a huge surprise they were focused on this part of the team.

The two most intriguing prospects though are wide receiver Damiere Byrd out of South Carolina and cornerback Garry Peters out of Clemson. Byrd is not a big guy but has a ton of speed, running a 4.28 40-yard dash at the South Carolina Pro Day. Clemson’s Garry Peter played in 12 games for the Tigers in 2014 finishing with 45 tackles, 1 interception, 12 passes broken up and two sacks.

Both of these players play positions that are particularly deep for the Panthers and will need strong OTAs and Training Camp to earn a roster spot. However at a minimum should be able to get a spot on the team’s practice squad.
