Veteran S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is also among the players trying out for Carolina. The full group of five players includes S Tenny Adewusi and WR Rashard Davis as well, per Darin Gantt.

Yeldon, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2015. He played out his four-year, $5.913 million rookie contract that included $3.699 million guaranteed.

The Jaguars allowed Yeldon to leave in free agency and he later signed a two-year contract with the Bills. He was testing the market again as an unrestricted free agent in 2021. 

In 2020, Yeldon appeared in three games for the Bills and rushed for 70 yards on 10 carries (7 YPC) to go along with one reception for 22 yards and a touchdown.

Gonzalez, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Browns back in 2017. He was in the second year of his four-year, $2.48 million contract and set to make a base salary of $555,000 in 2018 when the Browns waived him a few weeks into the regular season.

The Cardinals later signed Gonzalez to their practice squad before promoting him to their active roster during the 2018 season. Arizona brought him back on a one-year restricted tender in 2020 worth $3.27 million.

In 2020, Gonzalez appeared in 12 games for the Cardinals and converted 16 of 22 field-goal attempts (72.7 percent) to go along with 38 of 39 extra-point tries (97.4 percent).
