Luvu went undrafted after playing his college ball at Washington State. He’s played for the Jets over the last three seaons mostly in a backup role, earning just four starts in 40 games.

Most likely the Panthers see Luvu as a rotational edge rusher. He’s struggled tackling and in coverage but has six sacks, 16 QB hits and 30 pressures since the 2018 season.
