CHARLOTTE — The Panthers found a couple of players this weekend that they wanted to take a longer look at.
The team has signed safety Lano Hill and defensive end Kendall Donnerson after they attended this weekend's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
Hill, a former third-round pick of the Seahawks, was a known commodity at a position of some degree of need for the Panthers. He only played two games for the Seahawks last year before going on injured reserve with a back issue, but has played in 42 games in his career.
Donnerson was originally a seventh-round pick of the Packers, who has also been in camp with the Raiders and Bengals.
To make room for them on the roster, the team waived kicker Matt Ammendola, linebacker Daniel Bituli, and defensive tackle P.J. Johnson.
