The Panthers announced they had re-signed WR Keith Kirkwood to the list.

In a corresponding move to make room, the team waived WR Talolo Limu Jones.
Kirkwood, 27, originally signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent from Temple in 2018, but was released after a few days and was added by the Saints. He was one of New Orleans’ last roster cuts coming out of preseason before re-signing to their practice squad.
The Panthers signed Kirkwood to a contract in 2020 after the Saints refused to offer Kirkwood a restricted contract. Kirkwood was expected to become a restricted free agent in 2021, but returned to Carolina on another one-year deal. He was waived in the preseason exit and bounced on and off their practice squad the rest of the year.
For his career, Kirkwood played 13 games for the Saints and Panthers while catching 17 passes for 239 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
