CHARLOTTE — The Panthers have added a veteran linebacker, signing Julian Stanford on Saturday.
Stanford, who's entering his ninth pro season, spent the last two years with the Bills, mainly contributing on special teams. He did start one game for Buffalo in 2018. That year he recorded his first career sack, forced fumble, and pass defensed.
Overall, Stanford has appeared in 88 games since 2012 with 11 starts. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Jaguars and has since spent time with the Lions, Buccaneers, Jets, and Bills.
Stanford had a tryout with the Panthers earlier this week, and passed COVID-19 testing protocols. As a corresponding roster move, the Panthers have waived linebacker David Reese.
