According to Dave Birkett, the Panthers are signing K Lirim Hajrullahu to a futures deal.
The Kosovo native had a stint on Carolina’s practice squad earlier this season. But the team was forced to release him due to a work visa issue.
The goal is to have that straightened out so Hajrullahu can kick in 2021.
Hajruhallu, 30, has kicked and punted in the CFL since 2014, including stints with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Hajruhallu worked out for the Seahawks last January but ultimately returned to the CFL. The Rams signed him to a contract in April only to waive him coming out of training camp.
From there, Hajruhallu signed on to the Panthers’ practice squad.
In 2019, Hajruhallu made 47-55 field goal attempts (85.5 percent) with a long of 56 yards for the Tiger-Cats. He also punted 106 times with a 43.1 average and a long of 62 yards.
