  • Panthers' Dezmen Southward: Remains with Carolina

    Southward signed a reserve/future contract with the Panthers on Monday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Southward spent the 2017 season on the Panthers' practice squad and also had a brief 10-day stint on the 53-man roster. The 27-year-old hasn't seen consistent game action since his rookie campaign with the Falcons in 2014.

    The Panthers waived Southward on Monday, Max Henson of the team's official website reports.

  • Panthers' Dezmen Southward: Earns promotion

    Southward was promoted from the practice squad Friday.

    After Daeshon Hall (knee) was sent to injured reserve, a roster spot opened up. Since safeties Demetrious Cox (ankle) and Kurt Coleman (knee) are listed as out for Sunday's game against the Lions, bringing up a safety was an easy choice. Southward will slot in as the No. 4 safety and likely won't see many defensive snaps, if any, but he'll be deployed in special teams situations.
