Panthers add WR Naanee
The Carolina Panthers have added former San Diego wide receiver
Legedu Naanee to the roster.
The team made it official on Friday. Naanee has not arrived at
the team’s training camp. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Naanee
must go through a physical and sign his contract before he take
part in practice. Rivera was hopeful Naanee would be cleared in
time for Friday night’s practice at Wofford College.
Naanee is a 6-foot-2, 220-pound receiver who was drafted by the
Chargers from Boise State in 2007. He spent four years in San
Diego, where Rivera was defensive coordinator and Panthers
offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski coached tight ends.
Naanee had 63 receptions in four seasons with the Chargers. He
had 23 catches a year ago despite missing six games with hamstring
