Cadet will work out with the Saints on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Cadet suited up for one game with the Panthers in 2018, but has not seen any other action since. The 30-year-old journeyman has played with six different teams since 2012, including two separate stints with the Saints. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) questionable for Week 7, it looks like New Orleans is looking for potential depth options at running back.
Cadet recorded 17 yards on 11 rushes and five yards on one reception while only appearing in one game in 2018. Cadet signed with the Panthers in the second half of the season but didn't play until Week 17, when the team was out of the playoff hunt. His 1.5 yards per carry made for an unimpressive performance overall. Cadet turns 30 next month and isn't likely to see anything more than a depth or special-teams role in 2019.
Cadet (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Lions. As expected, the recently signed running back will be out of uniform in his first opportunity with the Panthers. Cadet is expected to have a third-down/change-of-pace role in coming weeks behind starter Christian McCaffrey and backup Cameron Artis-Payne.
Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said Thursday that he assumes Cadet will be inactive for Sunday's game against Detroit, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports. Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday after the team decided to waive fellow running back C.J. Anderson. As evidenced by this news, Cadet might need some time to learn the playbook before he suits up in game action. If Cadet doesn't suit up Sunday, Cameron Artis-Payne will be in line for the reserve role behind bell-cow back Christian McCaffrey.
Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Cadet's place on Carolina's 53-man roster comes following the team's decision to waive veteran running back C.J. Anderson. Christian McCaffery remains the Panthers' clear bell-cow runner, so Cadet appears in line for a reserve role alongside Cameron Artis-Payne.
