Panthers pick up Legedu Naanee

Free agent receiver Legedu Naanee is heading to the Panthers.

The news of the former Charger’s new home was first reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune, and later confirmed by Naanee himself.

“Heading too Charlotte, can’t wait to meet my new teammates and get to work!” Naanee wrote on Twitter.

Naanee played in 10 games for the Chargers last year, starting nine, and caught 23 passes for 371 yards and a touchdown. Panthers head coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski both worked with Naanee in San Diego.
