Panthers head coach talks about how the move will benefit the offense and give other players more opportunities.

He's baaaaaccccckk.

Brenton Bersin, the Panthers’ on-again, off-again wide receiver, re-signed with the team Wednesday to fill the roster spot created by the trade of Kelvin Benjamin.

Bersin reached an injury settlement with the Panthers in September a couple weeks after separating his shoulder in a preseason game at Tennessee.

Bersin, 27, a Charlotte native and Wofford graduate, now has been cut and re-signed by the Panthers five times in six years. Bersin has caught 24 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown over parts of three seasons with his hometown team.

Though he's become the player a lot of Panthers fans love to hate on social media, Panthers coaches like Bersin’s route-running and his knowledge of all of the receiving positions.
