BREAKING: Carolina Panthers Signing Former Eagles Running Back

Another running back off the board and another huge signing by the Carolina Panthers.

According to multiple sources, the Panthers are signing former Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders.

It's yet another move by the Pantherin a move to bolster their backfield after trading Christian McCaffrey to the 49ers and not retaining D'Onta Foreman in free agency.

As Sanders turns 26 in May, he will enter his fifth season in the NFL, reuniting with his former Eagles coach, Duce Staley.

The Panthers have now traded for the first overall pick in this year's draft, signed Hayden Hurst, and, now, Sanders.

Despite playing alongside run-heavy quarterback Jalen Hurts in Philadelphia, Sanders had the best season of his career this past year, amassing 1,268 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns while playing a minimal role in the passing game.

Throughout his career, he has demonstrated impressive efficiency, leading all running backs with a minimum of 400 carries since 2019 in EPA per rush, as reported by ESPN's Mike Clay.

Miles Sanders brings a strong record of over 1,000 rushing yards in a single season and a career yards-per-carry average of 5.02.

Additionally, he has shown receiving abilities with a catch rate of 70.9% on 175 targets and an average of 7.6 yards per reception in his 57 appearances since being drafted by the Eagles in 2019.

With the departure of D'Onta Foreman, it's likely that Sanders will assume the primary running back role in Carolina, while Chuba Hubbard continues to serve as the team's RB2.

The addition of Sanders should significantly strengthen the Panthers' ground game in the upcoming 2023 season.
