Fans are going crazy online following news of the Carolina Panthers signing Michael Jordan.
Technically, the Panthers could sign whoever they want. And, given that there’s an NBA team owner going by that name right there in Charlotte, it shouldn’t all that far-fetched. But, as you should have figured out by now, that’s not the Michael Jordan we’re referring to. Who knows, though? They might bring in a baseball team someday.
Anywhoo, following their decision to return Cameron Erving, ESPN’s Field Yates is reporting that the Panthers are resigning Jordan, who also happens to be a guard.
You couldn’t make this up…
Jordan played in all 17 games for Carolina in 2022 and his return leaves the Panthers with all five of their starting offensive linemen from last season, as well as a pair of backups.
The blocker has been with the Panthers since 2021, with the team picking him up after he was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals. He transitioned to a reserve player last season after making 10 starts but, with Austin Corbett and Bray Christensen coming off injuries, there could be more opportunities for him to start.
Head coach Frank Reich has revealed that Corbett, who tore his ACL, will not be ready to start the season while Christensen is recovering from a broken ankle. Both players were injured in Week 18 last season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
