Panthers Sign Sixth-Round Pick RB Tyler Gaffney


The Panthers announced the signing of sixth-round pick RB Tyler Gaffney to a four-year contract on Saturday.

This marks the first draft pick signed by the Panthers since the draft concluded a week ago.

Gaffney was an interesting selection give that Carolina has plenty of running backs currently on their roster including: DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Kenjon Barner and Mike Tolbert — although Tolbert primarily plays fullback.

Over the course of four years at Stanford, Gaffney rushed for 2,500 yards on 486 carries (5.1 YPC) and contributed 37 total touchdowns.
