The Carolina Panthers announced Monday that they’ve signed S Dezmen Southward to their practice squad.
The Panthers’ practice squad now consists of:

- WR Mose Frazier
- TE Jason Vander Laan
- G Taylor Hearn
- OL Dorian Johnson
- CB Cole Luke
- QB Connor Cook
- DT Kendrick Norton

Southward, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Falcons back in 2014. He lasted just over one year in Atlanta before he was waived during the 2015 season.
Southward had a brief stint with the Colts before catching on with the Panthers toward the end of the 2016 season. Since then, he’s been on and off of their practice squad.
For his career, Southward has appeared in 20 games and recorded 17 tackles, one sack, an interception and two pass defenses.
