The Carolina Panthers announced that they’ve waived DT Chas Alecxih and WR Tobias Palmer on Tuesday with injury designations.
- The Panthers also signed rookie DL Tom Lally to a contract.
Should Alecxih and Palmer clear waivers tomorrow, they would revert to the team’s injured reserve list.
Yesterday, the Panthers brought in four defensive linemen for workouts, so they were clearly looking to make an addition to bolster their depth while some players recover from injuries.
Alecxih, 27, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Pittsburgh backin 2012. He spent one year in Miami before signing a future/reserve deal with the Chiefs.
Kansas City waived Alecxih after a few months, but he wound up being claimed off of waivers by the Chargers. San Diego brought Alecxih back in a future’s deal, but would later cut him loose during the 2015 free agency period.
The Panthers elected to sign him to a contract shortly after last year’s draft and spent the 2015 season on the team’s practice squad.
Palmer, 26, originally signed on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina State back in 2013. He later had brief stints with the Chargers and Saints before signing a future/reserve deal with the Bills last year.
However, Palmer was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason. The Steelers elected to sign him to a future’s deal back in January before waiving him shortly after this year’s draft.
The Panthers signed Palmer to a contract a few weeks later.
In 2013, Palmer appeared in one game, but didn’t record a single statistic.
Lally wound up going undrafted out of Mount Union a few months ago. He was highly productive defensive end at Mount Union and was named the D3football.com National Defensive Player of the Year and an AFCA All-American during his senior season.
Last year, Lally recorded 82 tackles and 20 sacks for Mount Union.
