According to Howard Balzer, the Carolina Panthers brought in eight free agents for workouts on Tuesday including OT Michael Ola.
The full list of tryouts for the Panthers includes:
- OT Isaiah Battle
- OT Roubbens Joseph
- OT Michael Ola
- OT Darrell Williams
- TE Blake Bell
- TE Billy Brown
- TE Kyle Carter
- QB Dalton Sturm
Ola, 30, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Hampton back in 2014. He lasted just a few months in Miami before catching on with the Bears.
After stints with the Chargers, Lions, Seahawks and Giants, Ola was signed to the Bills’ active roster during the 2016 season and he was on and off of their roster leading up to the 2017 season.
Buffalo elected to waive him injured reserve with a settlement coming out of the preseason last year and he eventually signed on with the Chargers and finished out the year in Los Angeles.
Ola joined the Saints back in May but was released coming out of the preseason. New Orleans re-signed him but released him after a week.
In 2017, Ola appeared in two games for the Chargers.
