The Carolina Panthers were busy Sunday as they won three players in total, including two from the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive back Rasul Douglas, defensive end Shareef Miller and offensive tackle Trenton Scott will have a chance to make it into Carolina’s final roster. Douglas, who is a former third-round pick, may have the best chance of making the roster as the Panthers fall short in high school. In 46 games with the Eagles, he recorded 118 combined tackles, 25 defensives and five interceptions.
The New York Giants placed emphasis on players who spent time with the defending Super Bowl champions as they won two players from the Kansas City Chiefs. Offensive tackle Jackson Barton and defensive back Adrian Colbert head to New York to battle for the bottom spots on the list. They also signed Damion Ratley, former member of the Cleveland Browns. Colbert is certainly an interesting player, as he could find a place on the roster due to New York’s problems in high school. He started in five of the six games he played last year with the Miami Dolphins in free safety.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are another team that made some interesting additions. While they only made one waiver request to quarterback Joshua Dobbs, they also re-signed free agent safety Sean Davis. Both players spent time with the Steelers and are now back in the fold. Pittsburgh even released quarterback Devlin Hodges to make room for Dobbs on the roster.
