The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent kicker Chandler Catanzaro on Friday with Graham Gano (knee) limited in practice on Thursday. Guard Amini Silatolu (knee) was put on Injured Reserve in a corresponding move. Those that own Gano need to make alternate plans this week with him being questionable after missing practice on Friday. Catanzaro made 11 of his 15 field-goal tries in nine games with the Buccaneers this year, including making only 23 of his 27 extra points. If he's forced into action against the Browns on Sunday, he should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released kicker Chandler Catanzaro on Monday, according to sources. Catanzaro made 11 of his 15 field-goal tries and 23 of his 27 extra-point attempts this year. He missed two of his three tries in the Week 10 loss to the Redskins and was let go as a result. Whoever Tampa brings in will not be fantasy-relevant.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers place kicker Chandler Catanzaro is having a great training camp and has rarely missed his field goal attempts. The Bucs failed with Roberto Aguayo and Nick Folk in recent years, and Catanzaro also has a stronger leg. The 27-year-old booter made 25 of his 30 attempts (83.3 percent) with the Jets last year, including going 2-for-2 from 50-plus yards. With Tampa's offense expected to take a step forward this year, Catanzaro could be a sleeper at the kicking position. Starting off the year without Jameis Winston under center, though, may prove problematic for the offense as a whole. You can probably leave Catanzaro to the waiver wire to begin the year.
