We are learning that former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Alex Erickson is signing to the Carolina Panthers practice squad.
Erickson played college football at Wisconsin and was signed by the Bengals as an undrafted free agent in 2016. He was the only undrafted free agent to make the Bengals’ final roster that year.
Erickson posted his first career 100+ receiving yard game on October 20, 2019 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he finished with 137 receiving yards as the Bengals lost 17-27. Overall, Erickson has 93 career receptions for 1,086 yards and 1 touchdown. As a returner though, he has 3,746 yards.
Erickson is one of the most versatile players in the NFL, and has not been truly given a shot to showcase his talents. He could end up being a steal for the Panthers.
Erickson was on the Texans earlier this year, and recently released.
