The Panthers claimed Vedvik off waivers Thursday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports.

Vedvik has the ability to act as both a kicker and punter, but the Panthers likely are taking a look at him as the latter due to regular punter Michael Palardy tearing his ACL in the offseason. Expect Vedvik to compete with undrafted rookie Joseph Charlton for that vacancy, while also potentially getting some reps at kicker behind Joey Slye.
