Catanzaro signed a contract with the Panthers on Friday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

Graham Gano is dealing with a knee injury that has apparently jeopardized his availability for Sunday's game in Cleveland, prompting Carolina to bring in Catanzaro as an insurance option. Catanzaro opened the season as Tampa Bay's kicker and converted 11 of 15 field-goal tries and 23 of 27 extra-point attempts before being let go last month. The Panthers should provide an update on Gano's status at some point prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. EST kickoff, at which point it will be known whether Catanzaro's services will be needed.
