Saunders was picked up by the Falcons' practice squad Thursday, Scott Bair of the team's official site reports.

Saunders was waived by the Panthers on Saturday after being unable to find a depth spot in a crowded wide receiver room. He'll stay in the NFC South and look to make an impression in Atlanta.

Waived by Panthers

Saunders was waived by the Panthers on Saturday, Darin Gantt of the team's official website reports.

Saunders was competing against a crowded wide receiver room in Carolina for the chance to make it on its final 53-man roster. He ultimately came up short, which means he will need to look for a new opportunity elsewhere unless if the team offers him a spot on their practice squad. The 26-year-old has been with the Panthers' organization since signing with them as an undrafted free agent in 2021.

Signs new contract with Panthers

Carolina signed Saunders to a reserve/future contract Monday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

Saunders didn't appear in a single contest during the 2022 season, though he did play in two games with the Panthers back in 2021. The young wideout will now get a chance to continue his development with the team.
