The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday that they’ve signed CB Lou Young to their practice squad and waived LB Brian Blechen from the unit.
The Panthers’ practice squad now consists of:
- DT Eric Crume
- CB Lou Young
- S Travell Dixon
- WR Keyarris Garrett
- TE Beau Sandland
- RB Jalen Simmons
- G David Yankey
- DE Larry Webster
- G Tyler Larsen
- WR Damiere Byrd
Young, 25, originally signed on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech back in May of 2014. He lasted just a few months in Denver before he was waived during the final week of the preseason.
After brief stints with the Ravens and Jaguars, Young signed a future/reserve contract with the Panthers last year but has been among their final roster cuts in each of the past two seasons. He signed on to the Panthers’ practice squad a month before being promoted to their active roster soon after.
However, Carolina cut him loose a week later.
This season, Young has been active for one game but has yet to record a statistic.
