The terms of the deal have not been disclosed.The Panthers added Catanzaro to the roster in December as a ‘break glass in case of emergency’ option after Graham Gano suffered a knee injury during practice. Catanzaro, or ‘Cat-Man’ as he is apparently called (Why did I not know this?!) ended up taking Gano’s roster spot for the final four games of the season and did an admirable job in his stead , going 5-for-5 in field goal attempts and 7-for-8 in extra point tries. Gano is expected to be back to 100% health heading into the 2019 season so there was no need for the Panthers to keep Cat-Man around, and it makes sense for the Jets to bring him back after they lost Jason Myers in free agency (he signed a four-year deal with the Seahawks).How broken up are you about this Panthers fans? Feel free to express your concerns and we’ll be here as a shoulder for you to cry on if you need us. The Panthers have announced that running back Kenjon Barner has been placed on injured reserve and guard Dorian Johnson has been activated from the practice squad to replace him on the 53-man roster.This move makes sense with Trai Turner being ruled out for Sunday’s season finale in New Orleans and Marshall Newhouse being listed as questionable. The Panthers are incredibly thin on the offensive line , and if Barner was unlikely to suit up—he was listed as questionable with a knee injury—it makes sense to bring in a healthy body at a position of dire need.Johnson was drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Cardinals but didn’t make their final 53-man roster. After stints on the Cardinals and Texans practice squads, he ended up in Carolina in January 2018 and was signed to a reserve future contract. He was one of the players cut when the Panthers finalized their 53-man roster this season , but he was re-signed and placed on the practice squad. He has never appeared in a regular season NFL game, but he’ll probably make his debut on Sunday against the Saints.
