The Carolina Panthers announced that they’ve signed DT Bruce Gaston to their practice squad on Tuesday.
The Panthers’ practice squad now consists of:
- DT Eric Crume
- S Travell Dixon
- WR Keyarris Garrett
- TE Beau Sandland
- RB Jalen Simmons
- G David Yankey
- DE Larry Webster
- WR Damiere Byrd
- DB Lou Young
- DT Bruce Gaston
Gaston, 24, originally signed on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May of 2014. Since then, he’s had brief stints with the Patriots and Dolphins before the Packers signed him to their active roster towards the end of the 2014 season.
After brief stints with the Bears, Vikings and Chargers, Gaston was claimed off of waivers by the Eagles. However, he lasted just a few days in Philadelphia before he was among their final roster cuts.
In 2015, Gaston appeared in nine games and recorded 12 tackles and a sack.
