CHARLOTTE – Reserve offensive lineman Greg Van Roten, a potential restricted free agent, has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Panthers through the 2019 season.
Van Roten is the first of 23 potential free agents – including five restricted free agents – to be re-signed by Carolina.
Signed on the eve of training camp last season, Van Roten was a surprise selection for the 53-man roster entering the regular season. He played in 10 games, primarily on special teams, getting 10 snaps on offense (nine of them at center against the Dolphins).
Van Roten will provide depth at both center and guard.
