The Carolina Panthers apparently didn’t have a scarecrow, or a practice squad protection, out to protect their Corn.

As first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Washington Football Team signed cornerback Corn Elder off the Panthers’ practice squad on Wednesday. Elder now fills the spot for Washington left behind by an injured Darryl Roberts.

The 2017 fifth-round pick will now reunite with his first NFL head coach Ron Rivera in the nation’s capital. He had also previously rejoined the man who drafted him into the league, general manager Dave Gettleman, in a two-month stint with the New York Giants back in 2019.

Elder, who went on his third go-around in Charlotte this season, was signed by the Panthers back on Sept. 14. He, most recently, saw regular season action in all 16 games of the 2020 campaign, recording 40 tackles, three pass deflections and a forced fumble for Carolina.

Unfortunately, this may be the end of any corn-related puns for our departed friend. Aw, shucks.
