Panthers sign Cadet (2018-11-12 22:38:36)

CHARLOTTE -- The Carolina Panthers, coming off their worst loss of the season (a 52-21 setback at Pittsburgh last Thursday night) made a couple of moves on Monday.

They released running back C.J. Anderson after just nine games, and they signed running back Travaris Cadet to a one-year deal to fill Anderson's roster spot.

Cadet, 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, is in his seventh NFL season and previously played for the New Orleans Saints (2012-14, 2015-17), the New England Patriots (2015), the San Francisco 49ers (2015), the New York Jets (2017) and most recently, the Buffalo Bills (2017).

His 2017 season ended in Week 16 when he suffered a severe ankle injury, but he recovered in time to earn a one-year deal from the Bills this past offseason. He was ultimately cut when Buffalo finalized the 53-man roster.

Cadet has seen action in 72 career games, totaling 49 carries for 180 yards and 118 receptions for 959 yards and seven touchdowns. He's also returned 63 kickoffs for 1,531 yards (24.3-yard average).

Cadet played collegiately at Appalachian State University and entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Saints in 2012.

The Panthers (6-3), who trail the Saints by two games for first place in the NFC South, play at Detroit on Sunday.
