Panthers complete initial 2022 practice squad

The Carolina Panthers have now pieced together their initial practice squad for the 2022 season. All that was missing were the official announcements of the final two additions . . . and we got ’em.

On Thursday, the league confirmed Carolina’s signings of quarterback Jacob Eason and wide receiver C.J. Saunders. They will, at least to start the campaign, account for the 15th and 16th spots on the squad.

Eason comes over from the Seattle Seahawks, where he completed 19 of his 39 attempts for 148 yards and an interception over two preseason outings. The 24-year-old passer was previously a member of the Indianapolis Colts, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL draft.

Saunders, who should be a bit more familiar to Panthers fans, returns after being waived on Tuesday. He appeared in two games last season.

Here is the practice squad in its entirety:

  • TE Josh Babicz

  • OL Deonte Brown

  • S Juston Burris

  • QB Jacob Eason

  • CB Madre Harper

  • CB Tae Hayes

  • WR Ra’Shaun Henry

  • DE Drew Jordan

  • DE Austin Larkin

  • RB John Lovett

  • LB Arron Mosby

  • S Kenny Robinson Jr.

  • WR C.J. Saunders

  • C Sam Tecklenburg

  • TE Colin Thompson

  • WR Derek Wright
