CHARLOTTE — The Panthers on Friday officially signed safety Sean Chandler off the Giants' practice squad.
Chandler signed with New York as an undrafted free agent out of Temple in 2018 and played 32 games for the Giants. He appeared in all 16 games as a rookie and 13 games last year, mainly playing special teams.
While Chandler spent some of this season on the practice squad, he was activated for the first two games and then signed to the 53-man roster for the Week 4 contest against the Rams. He also played under Matt Rhule for his first three seasons at Temple before the head coach moved on to Baylor in 2017.
Chandler will join the Panthers' in-person activities once he clears all COVID-19 testing protocols.
In their annual tradition, Panthers rookies dressed up in costume for patients at the Levine's Children's Hospital. This year, they hosted a virtual live show for the children to watch safely.
