Holyfield, 22, signed with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia. He signed a three-year, $1.755 million contract in 2019 but was cut loose as a rookie and re-signed to Carolina’s practice squad.
The Eagles signed Holyfield off the Panthers’ practice squad back in December but was cut loose coming out of this year’s preseason and re-signed to their taxi squad.
During his three-year career at Georgia, Holyfield rushed 215 times for 1340 yards and nine touchdowns in 27 games. He also caught seven passes for 63 yards.
