Pleasants, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Ohio back in 2020. He later signed a rookie contract with the Jaguars.
Jacksonville waived Pleasants coming out of the preseason and he was later added to their practice squad. The Jaguars brought him back on a futures contract before cutting him loose at the start of the regular season.
After another stint on the Jaguars practice squad, Pleasants signed with the Panthers practice squad in November.
In 2021, Pleasants appeared in one game for Carolina.
