Panthers Re-sign Chris Scott

Posted Mar 3, 2016

Versatile reserve offensive lineman reaches one-year deal before the start of free agency.

CHARLOTTE - Chris Scott, a valuable reserve and occasional starter along the offensive line the past three seasons, has signed a one-year contract to remain with the Panthers.

Scott, who was set to become an unrestricted free agent on March 9, played in 13 regular season games at guard and on special teams this past season. He played in all three postseason games. He wasn't on the team the first few weeks of 2014 but returned to a similar role, also taking some snaps at tackle. In 2013, his first year with the Panthers, Scott started seven games at right guard and one game at left guard.

Scott was a fifth-round draft pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010 out of the University of Tennessee.

With Scott, linebacker Ben Jacobs and long snapper J.J. Jansen having re-signed, and with cornerback Josh Norman getting the franchise tag, here is updated list of Carolina's potential free agents:
