Panthers Sign LB Spencer Paysinger, Place LB Jared Norris On IR

The Carolina Panthers announced Tuesday that they’ve signed LB Spencer Paysinger to a contract and placed LB Jared Norris on injured reserve.

  • The Panthers also signed LB Richie Brown to their practice squad.

The Panthers’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. WR Mose Frazier
  2. OT Blaine Clausell
  3. DE Efe Obada (International)
  4. S Damian Parms
  5. WR Jamaal Jones
  6. CB Zack Sanchez
  7. RB Jalen Simmons
  8. DB Dezmen Southward
  9. K Roberto Aguayo
  10. TE Evan Baylis
  11. LB Richie Brown

Paysinger, 29, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon back in 2011. He spent four years in New York before signing a one-year deal with the Dolphins in 2015.

Miami elected to bring him back on a one-year contract last March and he finished out the year with the Dolphins. The Jets would sign Paysinger to a contract this past June only to cut him loose at the start of the regular season.

In 2016, Paysinger appeared in 15 games for the Dolphins and recorded 59 tackles, no sacks, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 51 linebacker out of 87 qualifying players.
