Searcy played in only two games for the Panthers after signing a two-year deal as an unrestricted free agent last year because of a concussion.
Battle, 26, became the first player taken in a Supplemental Draft since the Browns used a second-round pick on Josh Gordon back in 2012 when the Rams used a 2015 fifth-round pick on him.
The Chiefs eventually signed Battle off of the Rams’ practice squad and brought him back on a future/reserve contract in 2017. However, Kansas City traded him to the Seahawks for a 2018 conditional seventh-round pick coming out of the preseason.
The Seahawks kept Battle on their practice squad through the end of 2017 before releasing him at the end of the 2018 preseason. Battle signed with the Panthers on a futures deal at the end of 2018.
Battle played in 27 career games and started 11 contests last season while playing more snaps than any other Clemson player (824). He has yet to appear in an NFL game.
