Miles Sanders Signs Four-Year Contract With Carolina Panthers

Former Penn State star running back Miles Sanders is on the move.

Sanders and the Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms on a four-year deal, the team announced Wednesday night. The contract’s value has yet to be announced. The former second-round pick has found a new home after spending the last four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Pittsburgh native is coming off one of his best seasons as a pro, being named to his first Pro Bowl and finishing fifth in the league in rushing yards with 1,269 and also totaling a career-high 11 rushing touchdowns. On top of a career year, Sanders played in his first Super Bowl with the Eagles this past season.

During his four years in Philadelphia, Sanders totaled 3,708 rushing yards and 23 total touchdowns. He also set Eagles franchise records for most rushing, scrimmage, and all-purpose yards by a rookie.

Sanders now joins Frank Reich and Co. in Carolina and reunites with Duce Staley, who was the running backs coach for Philadelphia during the year Sanders was drafted. He will attempt to fill the void of former All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey, who was traded during the middle of last season to the San Francisco 49ers.
