CHARLOTTE – Canadian offensive tackle
The 6-8, 320-pounder from the University of Montreal was the fifth overall pick in the 2014 Canadian Football League Draft by the Montreal Alouettes.
"He's got long arms and he's got a nice accent," head coach Ron Rivera said. "He did some nice things. He's very athletic. What's really nice is as (offensive line coaches John Matsko and Ray Brown) started trying to get him to understand certain techniques and the way we do things here – it's a little bit different obviously – he seemed to be able to pick those things up.
"He's very intriguing for us."
Last year, Carolina signed fellow-Canadian tryout
The Panthers have also signed punter
In corresponding roster moves, the Panthers have waived tackle Travis Bond, guard Michael Jasper and guard Phillipkeith Manley. Bond played in two games, did not play in two games and was inactive for three games for Carolina last season after being signed as a free agent from Minnesota's practice squad on November 13. Jasper spent the entire 2013 regular season, with the exception of Week 1, and postseason on the Panthers’ practice squad. Manley had joined the team earlier this offseason as a free agent.
