·1 min read

On Saturday, the Carolina Panthers signed running Darius Bradwell to a reserve/future contract.

Before cracking into the NFL as an undrafted free agent in April of 2020, the six-foot, 235-pounder played four years of collegiate ball at Tulane University. Initially recruited as a quarterback, Bradwell did not throw a single pass in his first season with the Green Wave, only rushing 11 times for 33 yards over three games.

Bradwell then transitioned to the backfield starting in 2017, where he ran for 6.2 yards per attempt over 66 takes. He then followed up with his most productive campaign in 2018, totaling 1,134 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground.

The 24-year-old Tallahassee, Fla. native joins the following 12 players who have also been inked by the Panthers over the past week:

  • QB P.J. Walker

  • FB Giovanni Ricci

  • RB Spencer Brown

  • CB Madre Harper

  • DL Frank Herron

  • OL Mike Horton

  • OL Aaron Monteiro

  • WR Aaron Parker

  • WR C.J. Saunders

  • TE Colin Thompson

  • DE Austin Larkin

  • OL Austen Pleasants
