Clay appeared in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
After tallying 20 snaps Saturday, it seems likely that Clay has full overcome the foot injury that had been plaguing him for much of last year.
Clay (foot) signed a one-year contract with the Panthers, Bryan Strickland of the team's official website reports.
A 2015 sixth-round pick, Clay was released by Tampa Bay at the end of his first training camp, and then caught on with the Ravens as a return specialist for the final seven weeks of his rookie season. He was in the mix to earn the same role last summer, but the Ravens released him with an injury settlement after he suffered a broken foot during training camp. While unlikely to make an impact on offense, Clay is a candidate to replace Tedd Ginn (Saints) as Carolina's primary return man.
Per the NFL's official transaction report,
Clay sustained a broken foot during training camp and has resided on Baltimore's IR since. Once healthy, he could sign with a team in need of a return man.
