CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers on Friday reached a two-year deal with free agent wide receiver Tiquan Underwood, a source close to the situation told
The deal came a day after Carolina signed former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Jerricho Cotchery.
The Panthers are looking to replace their top four wide receivers from last season. Steve Smith was released, while Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn Jr. and Domenik Hixon were lost in free agency.
Underwood likely will compete for the third receiver spot and on special teams as a kick returner.
A seventh-round draft pick by Jacksonville in 2009, Underwood caught a career-high 24 passes for 440 yards for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.Covered Panthers, NFL for 11 years
