Report: Panthers Have Discussed The Idea Of Signing WR Greg Little

 

Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, citing two team sources, reports that the Panthers have in fact discussed the idea of possibly signing recently released WR Greg Little.

However, Person’s sources mentioned that, as of now, there are no plans to sign the former second-round pick.

Carolina almost immediate came up as a potential landing spot for Little seeing as they parted ways with veteran WR Steve Smith while allowing Ted Ginn and Brandon LaFell to sign elsewhere in free agency.

The Panthers have since brought in veteran receivers like Jerricho Cotchery, Tiquan Underwood and Jason Avant, and also drafted Kelvin Benjamin in the first round.

Little, 24, clearly hasn’t lived up to his draft status, but he could be worth signing for a team like the Panthers who have limited cap space to work with. Little has continuously struggled with drops during his first few years in the NFL, so that is also a concern moving forward.

Last year, he appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and caught 41 passes for 465 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
