Panthers sign OG Amini Silatolu to one-year deal
Posted February 17
Charlotte, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers have signed offensive guard Amini Silatolu to a one-year contract, the team announced Friday morning.
Silatolu – drafted No. 40 overall in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft – reunites with Carolina after spending four seasons with the team.
The 6 foot 2, 320-pound lineman started in 28 of 34 games with the Panthers, including 15 starts as a rookie. Silatolu started in only 13 games following his rookie campaign after battling multiple injuries.
Silatolu missed 12 games in 2013 with a torn left ACL and the final six contests in 2015 after tearing the ACL in his right knee. The oft-injured Silatolu was also placed on injured reserve after dislocating his wrist in Week 16 of the 2012 season.
The former Midwestern State University standout signed a one-year deal with Chicago last year, spending training camp and preseason with the Bears, but he was released prior to the start of the regular season.
