Panthers make roster moves, including signing 19 undrafted free agents


CHARLOTTE—The Carolina Panthers made a series of roster moves on Friday, as the roster for the 2024 offseason fills out. The club signed 19 undrafted free agents, and they will make their debuts this weekend at rookie minicamp.

The group will be on the field Friday and Saturday for practice, along with the seven-man draft class, which includes first-round receiver Xavier Legette.

The full list of undrafted rookies is as follows:

DE Popo Aumavae, Oregon

WR Jalen Coker, Holy Cross

OT Jeremiah Crawford, Tennessee

CB Willie Drew, Virginia State

OT Christian Duffie, Kansas State

OLB Kenny Dyson, Bryant

TE Kevin Foelsch, New Haven

CB DeShawn Gaddie, Ole Miss

DE Darius Hodges, Tulane

S Clayton Isbell, Coastal Carolina

OLB Derrick McLendon, Colorado

K Harrison Mevis, Missouri

LB Jackson Mitchell, UConn

WR Sam Pinkney, Coastal Carolina

QB Jack Plummer, Louisville

C Andrew Raym, Oklahoma

S Demani Richardson, Texas A&M

RB Jaden Shirden, Monmouth

DT Ulumoo "MJ" Ale, Washington

To make room for the undrafted rookie signings coming in for this weekend's rookie minicamp, the Panthers released seven players.

That list includes running backs Tarik Cohen and Spencer Brown, tight end Chris Pierce, wide receiver Jalen Camp, offensive lineman Ilm Manning, defensive tackle Raequan Williams, and cornerback AJ Parker.

All had been around on the roster or practice squad last season.

Cohen was attempting a comeback from a series of injuries that derailed his time as a Pro Bowl returner with the Bears. The North Carolina native and NC A&T product hadn't played in a regular season game since 2020.

The Panthers will also have four tryout players here, including Irish kicker Rory Beggan, who is part of the International Pathway Program. Also trying out this weekend are quarterback Sean Chambers (Montana State) and guards Justin Shaffer (a former sixth-round pick of the Falcons from Georgia) and Greg Anderson (Monmouth).
