The Panthers confirmed the news on Friday and announced that they’ve placed DL Frank Herron on the practice squad injured list.

Here’s the Panthers updated practice squad:

  1. DT Frank Herron (Injured)
  2. WR Keith Kirkwood
  3. G Aaron Monteiro
  4. WR C.J. Saunders
  5. TE Stephen Sullivan
  6. QB James Morgan
  7. WR Aaron Parker

  13. RB Spencer Brown
  14. P Lachlan Edwards
  15. DE Austin Larkin

Snead, 29, originally signed on with the Browns as an undrafted free agent back in 2014. He lasted just a few months in Cleveland before signing on to the Panthers’ practice squad during his rookie season.

Snead joined the Saints towards the end of the year and would go on to spend three years in New Orleans. From there, Snead signed a two-year offer sheet worth up to $10.4 million with the Ravens in 2018. 

Snead finished a one-year, $6 million extension for the 2020 season and was testing the market as an unrestricted free agent when he agreed to a one-year contract with the Raiders this past March. The Raiders released Snead earlier in the week.

In 2021, Snead has appeared in seven games for the Raiders and caught three passes for 32 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
