Larkin was added to the Panthers' active roster Saturday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports. Larkin, who had a short stint on the Falcons' active roster in 2019, will be making his first official appearance with the Panthers entering Week 6. Expect him to act as defensive-line depth for the time being.
Larkin signed a contract with the Texans on Friday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Larkin spent most of the 2019 season on the Falcons' practice squad but was promoted for the final two games. The Falcons ended up cutting Larkin in early August, and now he'll try to wade through a crowded defensive-end corps to secure a roster spot in 2020.
Larkin was waived by the Falcons on Tuesday. Larkin was with the team for Week 12's loss to the Buccaneers and played just 11 special-teams snaps. He is likely headed back to Atlanta's practice squad.
The Falcons promoted Larkin to their 53-man roster Saturday. Larkin just signed with the Falcons' practice squad earlier in the week, so his promotion comes relatively quick. However, he is familiar with the team, as he spent training camp with the club. He is expected to provide depth at defensive end and presumably contribute on special teams.
Larkin joined the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The 24-year-old defensive end was brought back in a corresponding move to Anthony Coyle being waived, a month and a half after Larkin himself was waived from the Falcons' practice squad. Larkin has yet to appear in a regular-season game, but for the time being he provides the organization with another developmental piece along the defensive line.
