Jeremy Cash was one of the biggest names that went undrafted in the spring. Now he’s on the Carolina Panthers’ 53-man roster.
Cash made the final roster on Saturday, according to a team source, after one of the best preseasons by a rookie linebacker in the league.
A former Duke safety, Cash went undrafted due to being perceived as a “tweener” as well as some injuries in his past. The Panthers gave him a $20,000 signing bonus and beat out the Bengals to get him into camp.
The Panthers turned the safety into an outside linebacker, something the team has a history of doing with Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson. Cash played his way onto the roster with his defensive skills as well as on special teams.
