The Panthers needed another arm for OTAs, since Cam Newton’s isn’t available.

And boy they found one.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Panthers signed quarterback Garrett Gilbert.

Gilbert was most recently on the Raiders’ practice squad, and has also spent time with the Lions, Patriots and Rams.

He hasn’t thrown a regular season pass, but he did earn a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots in 2015.

The Panthers needed someone other than Derek Anderson and Joe Webb for practice since Newton’s about to have shoulder surgery next week, which will keep him out until at least the start of training camp.

    Garrett Gilbert was a top recruit coming out of high school. He was to be Colt McCoy’s replacement at Texas. If you remember the Texas vs Alabama National Championship game where McCoy got injured early in the game. Gilbert is who replaced him. Gilbert’s first action at the college level was playing in that game. He didn’t do too bad however was pretty much handcuffed by the coaches.

    However after that he totally flopped at Texas setting the program back to where it is now. Texas had no plan B at QB. That cost Mack Brown his job and we’re still struggling.
