On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers declined to activate S Da’Norris Searcy from injured reserve, despite designation to return.
This officially ends Searcy’s 2018 season, as he’ll remain on the injured reserve list for the remainder of the season.
Searcy, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Bills back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract in Buffalo and eventually signed a four-year, $23.75 million deal that included $7 million guaranteed with the Titans in 2015.
Last year, Searcy agreed to a pay cut to be back with the Titans and was set to make a base salary of $3.8 million for the 2018 season when the Titans released him during the offseason.
The Panthers signed Searcy to a two-year deal worth $5.7 million in March.
In 2018, Searcy appeared in two games and recorded five tackles and no interceptions or pass defenses.
