The Carolina Panthers announced Wednesday that they’ve signed DE Efe Obada a one-year contract extension through the 2019 season.
“I’m very grateful. It’s another opportunity to contribute to the team and obviously support myself and my family,” said Obada.
Obada, 26, signed on with the Cowboys back in 2015. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but was later added to the Cowboys’ practice squad at the start of the regular season.
After brief stints with the Chiefs and Falcons, Obada signed on to the Panthers’ practice squad in 2017. He returned to Carolina on a futures contract last year and was placed on the exempt/international player list before being activated in time for the start of the 2018 season.
Obada was in line to be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Obada appeared in 10 games for the Panthers and recorded eight tackles, two sacks, an interception and two pass defenses.
