Panthers Sign Five Players

The Carolina Panthers announced Monday that they’ve signed five players to one-year contracts for the 2019 season including:

  1. WR Rashad Ross
  2. DT T.J. Barnes 
  3. DT Destiny Vaeao
  4. TE Thomas Duarte
  5. OT Brandon Greene

Ross, 29, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State back in 2013. He had brief stints with the Chiefs, Redskins, Bears, Redskins, 49ers and Bills before signing on with the Cardinals in 2017. 

Arizona brought Ross back on a futures contract last year only to cut him loose during the preseason. 

In 2016, Ross appeared in five games and caught one pass for eight yards receiving and no touchdowns. He has also contributed 22 kick return yards for Washington this season.

Vaeao, 25, signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Washington State back in 2016. He was in the final year of a three-year, $1.62 million contract when the Eagles waived Vaeao with an injury designation.

Vaeao later reverted to the Eagles’ injured reserve list before being released with an injury settlement. From there, he signed on to the Jets’ practice squad and was later promoted to the active roster. 

In 2018, Vaeao appeared in six games for the Eagles and recorded two total tackles and one sack.
