  • Justin Layne: Let go Wednesday

    The Panthers released Layne from the reserve/did not report list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Carolina scooped Layne off waivers from the Eagles in December, but the cornerback never reported to Carolina. The 25-year-old appeared in nine games last season between the Giants and Bears, contributing mainly on special teams.

  • Panthers' Justin Layne: Placed on reserve/DNR list

    Layne (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/did not report list Friday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official website reports.

    Layne was claimed off waivers earlier in the week but did not join the team, leading to him being placed on the reserve list. The cornerback does not count against the Panthers' 53-man roster and will need to be reinstated to play moving forward.

  • Bears' Justin Layne: Unavailable Week 15

    Layne (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

    Layne is now slated to miss this weekend's matchup versus Philadelphia due to a coach's decision. He's primarily operated as a special-teams contributor thus far in 2022, so his absence shouldn't greatly alter Chicago's defensive game plan Sunday.

  • Bears' Justin Layne: Picked up by Chicago

    The Bears claimed Layne off waivers Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Layne was a 2019 third-round draft pick by Pittsburgh and spent his first three NFL campaigns with the Steelers. He played in all 17 games last season but was used primarily on special teams. The same can be said for his usage in 2022, as he's played in seven games for the Giants but mainly as a special-teams contributor. There's a shot that Layne will be able to rejuvenate his defensive career in Chicago.

    Layne was a 2019 third-round draft pick by Pittsburgh and spent his first three NFL campaigns with the Steelers. He played in all 17 games last season but was used primarily on special teams. He'll likely reprise that role with the Giants while working to see more defensive work.
