Carolina Panthers sign tight end Seth DeValve

New, comments

The Panthers have added some depth at tight end.

The Carolina Panthers have added another depth player to their roster today by signing tight end Seth DeValve, according to multiple reports. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

DeValve was selected out of Princeton in the fourth round (No. 138 overall) by the Cleveland Browns in the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent the 2019 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and has accumulated 59 catches for 732 yards and four touchdowns in his four-year career.

This signing gives the Panthers some needed depth at tight end after letting Greg Olsen go. DeValve isn’t going to turn many heads as a splash move, but his history of playing on special teams is definitely a positive and likely the reason he was signed by Carolina. The terms of the deal haven’t been announced yet but I can’t imagine it’s more than a 1-2 year contract for around $4-ish million. We’ll have a better idea of how to react to this signing when those details are known, so stay tuned for updates.
