The Panthers confirmed the news as well as the signing of TE Nate Becker.

Carolina also placed DE Jacob Tuioti-Mariner on injured reserve and waived CB Devin Jones with an injury designation. 

Izzo, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2018. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.5 million rookie contract when the Patriots traded him to the Texans in March of last year. 

Houston opted to waive Izzo coming out of the preseason. He quickly caught on with the Giants’ practice squad. He was also briefly a member of the Seahawks’ taxi squad before joining the Titans back in January. Tennessee elected to waive Izzo in June. 

In 2020, Izzo appeared in 12 games for the Patriots and caught 13 passes for 199 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
