Panthers sign eight tryout players from weekend's minicamp

After clearing some roster room earlier today, the Panthers have signed eight tryout players from this weekend's rookie minicamp to deals.

The No. 1 overall pick in the Canadian Football League Linden Gaydosh is the biggest name of the eight players inked by the Panthers.

Gaydosh, listed as a defensive lineman coming out of the University of Calgary, is listed as a defensive tackle by the Panthers.

The team also added three wide receivers and a tight end. Former Wofford player Brenton Bersin rejoins the Panthers after being on the 90-man roster in training camp last year. Furman's R.J. Webb, who Panthers coach Ron Rivera said made a big catch during the first session of Saturday's practice, and Louisiana Tech's Taulib Ikharo are the other two receivers.

TCU TE Logan Brock and Washburn C Brian Folkerts round out the offensive additions.

Along with Gaydosh, the Panthers added Wisconsin DE Louis Nzegwu and Fresno State LB Ben Jacobs to the team. 

The team is also expected to sign Centre College K Jordan Gay.

Panthers are looking like "Giants South" with Gettleman looking more like Jerry Reese, turning every stone for players

Gay is a camp leg and nothing more. After reading his stats, the coaching staff must have seen something else. GANO NEEDS TO GO but is signing a suspect free agent the way to go? Only time will tell.
