AP Source: Panthers reach deal with WR Naanee
Thursday, August 4, 2011
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- A person familiar with the negotiations says the Carolina Panthers have agreed to a deal with free agent receiver Legedu Naanee.
Naanee played four seasons for the Chargers after getting drafted out of Boise State in 2007. He caught 63 passes for 736 yards and three touchdowns for San Diego, which declined to offer him a contract.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the agreement.
Naanee's best pass-catching year came in 2009 with 24 receptions. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Naanee will compete for the second receiver role with David Gettis, Brandon LaFell and Armanti Edwards.
