The Carolina Panthers announced Sunday that they’ve placed S Damian Parms on injured reserve and signed DB Alex Carter.
Carter, 23, is a former third-round pick of the Lions back in 2015. He was waived by the Lions at the start of the 2016 and they later signed to their practice squad before eventually being called up in December.
Since then, Carter has had brief stints with the Patriots, Seahawks and Bears before returning to Seattle towards the end of last season.
The Seahawks re-signed Carter to a futures contract this past January, but recently elected to cut him loose.
In 2016, Carter appeared in one game for the Lions but did not record a statistic.
