Panthers Sign QB Kyle Allen To PS, Release S Dezmen Southward


The Carolina Panthers announced Tuesday that they’ve signed QB Kyle Allen to their practice squad and released S Dezmen Southward from the unit.

Here’s the Panthers updated practice squad:

  1. RB Reggie Bonnafon
  2. WR Mose Frazier
  3. TE Jason Vander Laan
  4. G Taylor Hearn
  5. OL Dorian Johnson
  6. CB Cole Luke
  7. WR DeAndrew White
  8. DB Lorenzo Doss
  9. LB Brandon Chubb
  10. QB Kyle Allen

Allen, 22, signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent back in April. He began his college career at Texas A&M before transferring after two seasons and joining Houston for the 2017 season.

Allen was waived coming out of the preseason before the Panthers added him to their practice squad last week, but elected to waive him last month in favor of DT Kendrick Norton.

During his college career, Allen threw for 4,283 yards while completing 61.7 percent of his passes to go along with 37 touchdowns and 18 interceptions over the course of three seasons and 24 total games played.
