The Panthers signed Scott on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The veteran safety spent last season with Cincinnati spending the first four years of his career in Los Angeles, and he's now headed to Carolina. During the Bengals' 2023 campaign, Scott tallied 57 total tackles, including one tackle for loss, across 17 outings. Carolina has now added two safeties in Scott and Jordan Fuller this offseason, and Scott is expected to compete for a depth role in the Panthers' secondary.

Done in Cincy after one year

Scott will be released by the Bengals, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Scott signed a three-year contract with the Bengals in the 2023 offseason but lost his starting strong safety role to Jordan Battle during the season. Rather than keep Scott on as a backup, the Bengals have decided to release the former Rams safety with two years left on his deal. After compiling 190 tackles and four interceptions between the Rams and Bengals over the past three seasons, Scott will likely receive some interest as a free agent.

Finishes 2023 in depth role

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-02-12

Scott racked up 57 tackles (35 solo) and one fumble recovery across 17 regular-season appearances with the Bengals in 2023.

Scott began the first season of his three-year contract with Cincinnati in a starting role, but by Week 11 he was clearly replaced by 2023 third-round pick Jordan Battle at strong safety. The Bengals have a potential 'out' in Scott's contract for only $2 million in dead money this offseason, so it wouldn't be surprising if he ends up having to search for a role elsewhere.

Losing playing time

Scott played only eight defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Scott signed a three-year contract as a free agent this offseason, but has given way to Jordan Battle at strong safety for the past four games.

Leads team in tackles

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-03

Scott recorded 10 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 27-3 loss to Tennessee.

Scott led the team in both solo and total tackles and has now logged 33 tackles through four games. The 28-year-old will look to have another strong performance next week against an Arizona offense that has been playing better than expected so far.

Cleared for Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-23

Scott (concussion) was a full participant in Saturday's practice and is set to play against the Rams on Monday.

Scott was placed in the leagues' concussion protocol after leaving Sunday's game against the Ravens. The 2019 seventh-round pick will resume his starting safety spot opposite Dax Hill for Week 3.

In concussion protocol

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-19

Scott exited the Bengals' 27-24 loss to the Ravens on Sunday with a concussion and did not return.

The safety recorded nine tackles before leaving the game. Scott's status for Week 3 is uncertain as he goes through the five-step concussion protocol. The fifth-year pro has 20 tackles through two contests.

Will not return

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Scott has been declared out due to a concussion.

Scott will now have to enter the league's five-step concussion protocols, leaving his status for Week 3 against the Rams in question. Jordan Battle should continue to fill in at strong safety while Scott is sidelined.

Getting looked at

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Scott is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Scott could return to the game if he gets the all clear, but if he did indeed suffer a concussion, he'll of course not be able to get back on the field. While he's sidelined, Jordan Battle should handle the strong safety position.
