Panthers claim running back Royce Freeman off waivers on Thursday
The Carolina Panthers claimed running back Royce Freeman off waivers from the Denver Broncos on Thursday.
Freeman will be Carolina's third running back alongside Christian McCaffrey and rookie Chuba Hubbard. Consider Freeman a depth move more than a direct handcuff to McCaffrey.
Per Pro Football Focus on 35 rushing attempts last season, the 25-year old produced 170 yards, 2.86 yards after contact per carry, and a 72.6 rushing rating.
