Carolina Panthers sign Preston Williams

A new report claims that on Monday, the Panthers acquired a new tool that might aid Baker Mayfield.

The organization " signed former Dolphins' wide receiver Preston Williams to their practice squad," according to Adam Schefter.

Williams joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and played his first three seasons of professional football there.

The Colorado State product's career with the Fins was seriously hampered by injuries, despite some initial signs of potential.

Williams was rendered unnecessary by Miami due to all of the offseason offensive additions, but he now has the opportunity to establish himself with a new team.

After being let go by Miami last week, Williams want to move somewhere for a better opportunity. Williams hauled in 56 receptions for 787 yards and seven touchdowns during his three seasons with the Dolphins.

Additionally, he has some experience punt-returning, which the Panthers had been searching for as backup for Andre Roberts.

Anderson played three seasons each with the Colts and Jets before joining Gang Green in 2018. He recorded a career-high seven sacks that year. The Stanford alum has previously gained greater recognition as a run defender.

In New York, Anderson's sack statistics were not maintained, although from 2019 to 2020, he combined for seven tackles for loss. The 6-foot-6 defender inked a two-year, $7MM contract with the Patriots in 2021. But his season was cut short by a pectoral injury he experienced in October of last year.

Williams recorded 32 receptions for 428 yards across eight games in 2019, but an ACL tear put an end to that streak. Williams, a former teammate of Shenault at Colorado State, was unable to reintegrate into Miami.

He only appeared in eight games last year, and his 2020 season was cut short after eight games due to a foot injury. This summer, the Dolphins looked into Williams and got inquiries. But no deal was made. The 6-5 pass catcher will want to get on Carolina's active roster as soon as possible.

The team waived WR Ra'Shaun Henry to make way for Williams on the practice squad. Marquis Blair, a safety, was also added by the team to the practice squad.
