The Carolina Panthers have one of the deepest roster of running backs in the NFL, yet that fact didn’t stop the franchise from adding yet another rusher. The Panthers claimed RB Armond Smith off waivers from the Cleveland Browns. Smith is a second-year players who had just three carries for two yards with the Browns last season. Smith will be competing for the fourth running back spot on the Panthers roster.
Carolina currently has DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and newly acquired Mike Tolbert on the roster so the fourth roster spot will likely only see the field while playing special teams.
Smith attended a community college in Kansas and then transferred to Union, a NAIA school in Kentucky. He joined the Browns last season as an undrafted free agent. Smith will be competing against Tauren Poole and Lyndon Rowells for the last running back roster spot.
