Former Penn State Safety Nick Scott Signs With Carolina Panthers

Former Penn State safety Nick Scott signed with the Carolina Panthers, the team announced Friday.

With the move to Carolina, Scott will reunite with Panthers’ defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, who was Scott’s defensive back’s coach with the Rams.

Last offseason, Scott signed a three-year, $12 million deal with the Cincinnati Bengals but was cut from the team just one year into the deal. During his sole year in the Queen City, Scott played in all 17 games, starting in 10 of them. In those games, he recorded 57 tackles and recovered one fumble.

Before joining the Bengals, Scott was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams and spent all four years of his rookie deal with them. During his time in Los Angeles, Scott helped the Rams capture the franchise’s second Super Bowl title when they defeated Scott’s other former team, the Bengals, in Super Bowl LVI.

Scott has recorded 214 career tackles and has grabbed four interceptions. While he will likely compete for a starting job in Carolina, he adds great depth to a team in desperate need of secondary help.
