Panthers Sign OL Jeremiah Sirles

The Panthers have signed free agent offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles to a one-year deal, the club announced today.

Sirles, 26, hit the open market last week when the Vikings opted not to tender him as a restricted free agent. Capable of playing both tackle and guard, Sirles started 14 games from 2016-17 in Minnesota. Last year, Sirles played on 366 offensive snaps and graded as the NFL’s No. 48 tackle among 81 qualifiers, per Pro Football Focus.

In Carolina, Sirles will likely compete for time at left guard, a position vacated last week by Andrew Norwell, who inked a massive five-year deal with the Jaguars. Along with Sirles, Tyler Larsen and 2017 second-round pick Taylor Moton could be in line for playing time on the left side of the Panthers’ offensive line.
