Luton signed with the Panthers' practice squad Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Luton was waived by the team just before rosters were trimmed down to 53 in August. With Bryce Young dealing with an ankle injury, the Oregon State product will likely serve as an option behind Andy Dalton, if Young were to miss, as Carolina didn't previously have a third quarterback on their practice squad or active roster.

Luton was waived by the Panthers on Saturday, Darin Gantt of the team's official website reports.
Luton was the No. 4 quarterback on the Panthers' roster during training camp behind Bryce Young, Andy Dalton (back) and Matt Corral. Thus, he was considered a long shot to land on the team's final 53-man roster. It remains to be seen if he will need to look for a new opportunity elsewhere or if he will get a chance to join Carolina's practice squad.

Luton started three games for the Jaguars and has also spent time with the Seahawks, Dolphins and Saints. The 2020 sixth-round draft pick adds depth as the fourth quarterback for the Panthers firmly behind Bryce Young, Andy Dalton and Matt Corral.
The Saints waived Luton on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Luton spent last season with New Orleans' practice squad and signed a reserve/future contract with them in January. However, the Saints no longer had a need for the 27-year-old after signing Derek Carr and drafting Jake Haener in the fourth round of the 2023 draft, so Luton will now look for another opportunity elsewhere.
The Saints signed Luton to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.
Luton joined the Saints' practice squad after being waived by Jacksonville at the end of August. The backup quarterback was up and down between New Orleans' practice squad and active roster throughout the campaign, getting cut entirely on two separate occasions, but he never made any appearances. With his new contract, he'll have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot throughout offseason work and leading up to training camp in 2023.
