The Panthers still may not have a backup quarterback, but at least they have another one.

The Panthers announced they have claimed quarterback Taylor Heinicke off waivers from the Texans.

He appeared in one game for the Texans last year but hasn’t thrown a pass in an NFL game. He spent parts of three years with the Vikings and was with the Patriots also.

The Panthers don’t have much of an answer behind Cam Newton since they allowed Derek Anderson to walk into free agency — where he remains. They have Garrett Gilbert on the roster, and figure to add one at some point during the draft.

  1. Yet, with all those bodies they still don’t have a complete QB on staff if you just factor in the parts.

    When will Cam Cheating grow up? When will he accept the punishment of being an two-time honor code violator in college? When will he sit before an honor council and answer for submitting two term papers he did not write and passing them off as he did?

    And he won’t even fall on a fumble!

  2. It blows my mind that some so called “fans” still complain about what Cam did in college.Let it go already lol. Gilbert did an OK job during the pre-season, he showed potential in being a #2 guy in this league. This signing creates competition at the #2 spot. Wishing the best to all the guys trying to earn the position behind Cam.

  3. The Panthers really should change their jersey colors to purple so all those former Vikings feel at home.
