Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Panthers have claimed TE Chris Manhertz off of waivers from the Saints on Monday.
Manhertz, 24, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Canisius back in 2014. After one year in Buffalo, Manhertz signed on with the Saints during the preseason last year.
Manhertz was later signed to the Saints’ practice squad and brought back on a future/reserve contract this past January. New Orleans waived him this past weekend.
In 2016, Manhertz has been active for three games but has yet to catch a single pass.
