Well, that workout must’ve went rather nicely, huh?

Just hours after David Newton of ESPN reported that the Carolina Panthers were working out fullback Mikey Daniel on Tuesday, a deal between the two sides has been reached. The signing of the South Dakota State Jackrabbit and 2020 training camp body for the Atlanta Falcons was first noted by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

With the departure of Alex Armah to the New Orleans Saints, Daniel will officially be the lone fullback on the Carolina roster. The six-foot, 235-pounder averaged 4.7 per carry and scored 30 touchdowns over his four-year collegiate career.

The team also, according to Joseph Person of The Athletic, added defensive linemen Frank Herron and P.J. Johnson on Tuesday evening.

Herron, 6-foot-4 and 305 pounds, entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots in 2018. The LSU Tiger, after additional stints in Seattle, Miami, Tennessee and Detroit, has played in seven games between 2019 and 2020 for the Lions.

Johnson, another former Lion, was a seventh-round pick by Detroit in 2019. The 6-foot-4, 335-pounder has bounced around to the Los Angeles Chargers, Seattle and Arizona as well, having yet to log a regular-season snap.
