Chris Scott Re-Signed By Carolina Panthers

| No TrackBacks

Former Vols All-SEC selection Chris Scott has been re-signed by the Carolina Panthers and will join their practice squad.  Scott played in 10 games with eight starts for Carolina in 2013. He started the first eight games in 2013, replacing Amini Silatolu at left guard in the season opener before taking over at right guard when Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury. Scott then suffered a knee injury that slowed him the rest of the season, and he was waived in the final roster cutdown this year.
