  • Dolphins' Michael Palardy: Ready for season opener

    Palardy (knee) isn't listed on the injury report Wednesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

  • Dolphins' Michael Palardy: Lands in Miami

    The Dolphins signed Palardy (knee) to a one-year contract Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Palardy sat out the entire 2020 campaign due to a torn ACL suffered last offseason, but he should be good to go for the start of OTAs, assuming the league allows such activities to kick off in May or June. The only other punter currently on Miami's roster, Matt Haack, is scheduled to hit free agency.

  • Michael Palardy: Leaving Carolina

    The Panthers released Palardy (knee) on Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    The Panthers also released safety Tre Boston, with the moves freeing up about $11.5 million in salary cap space for the team, Brittney Melton of the Associated Press reports. Palardy didn't suit up for a single game during the 2020 campaign due to the torn ACL he suffered last July. The 28-year-old will now look to catch on with another team and resume his punting duties in the upcoming season.

    Palardy (knee) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

  • Panthers' Michael Palardy: Inks extension with Panthers

  • Panthers' Michael Palardy: Signs exclusive-rights deal with Panthers

    Palardy inked an exclusive-rights, free-agent tender from the Panthers on Monday, David Newton of ESPN reports.

He punted pretty well, posting a 37.9 net average while pinning the opposition inside the 20 on 13 different occasions. Palardy will need to beat out his veteran opposition in training camp to earn a 53-man roster spot.
