For the second time this year the Michigan Panthers have made attempts of improving their roster for the upcoming season. After signing four players in late July including former BC Lion Kiante Hardin, the Panthers have signed five players including Warren Saba who was an inaugural Michigan Panther, as the Safety was drafted by the Panthers in the 1st Round of the 2022 Supplemental Draft.
The Panthers pick up Two Offensive Linemen, Ka’John Armstrong, and Gene Pryor both of whom have some level of professional experience. Ka’John Armstrong has the most experience, playing with Cleveland, Jacksonville, Denver, and Atlanta in addition to playing with the Saskatchewan Rough Riders on their Practice Squad. Gene Pryor joins the Panthers, after spending three days with the Chiefs in May.
Joining Saba on the defensive side of the ball is Paddy Fisher, and Charles Williams. Fisher was an All-Conference Linebacker at Northwestern, before going undrafted in 2021. He would be signed as a UDFA, by the Carolina Panthers before getting cut in late August. He would link up with the Chargers on their practice squad for a week, before once again getting cut.
Another Linebacker with the Panthers signed is Charles Williams who recently was with the Frisco Fighters of the IFL. Williams comes from Northwood University and after two years with the Sioux Falls Storm and the Oakland Panthers, Williams would transition to the CFL in 2020, with the Ottawa Redblacks. With the cancellation of the 2020 CFL season Williams would come back to the IFL with Frisco until 2022.
