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

problems.
