The Panthers have signed safety Anderson Russell, according to today’s NFL personnel notice (Twitter link via Brian McIntyre). Russell had a previous stint with the Panthers, having joined the team in 2012, but was cut prior to the 2013 regular season.
Russell, 26, played his college ball at Ohio State before going undrafted in 2010. He has signed deals with the Redskins, Dolphins, and Panthers, but hasn’t seen any real action in the NFL. According to Pro Football Focus, he played just one snap for Carolina 2012.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but it’ll be a minimum salary contract. I doubt Russell will end up on the Panthers’ regular-season roster, though perhaps he’ll get a chance to earn a spot this summer.
