CHARLOTTE – The Panthers have reworked their depth at offensive tackle with another trade, acquiring hulking veteran Marshall Newhouse from the Bills in exchange for a future conditional draft pick.

Carolina made room for the 6-foot-4, 330-pounder by waiving offensive tackle Corey Robinson, acquired from the Lions on cutdown day. Robinson played three special teams snaps in the season opener.

Newhouse was selected in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Packers out of Texas Christian. Carolina is his sixth NFL stop: After playing for the Packers for four seasons with 31 starts, he spent one season with the Bengals, two with the Giants, one with the Raiders and the first three games of the 2018 season with the Bills.

Newhouse started 15 games at right tackle for the Raiders in 2017. He won a Super Bowl ring with the Packers as a rookie on injured reserve, then started 13 games at left tackle for Green Bay’s 2011 team that went 15-1 and started all 16 games for the 2012 team. He had only appeared on special teams for the Bills so far this season.

All told, Newhouse has appeared in 103 games with 70 starts.
