Zane Gonzalez, K (CAR)

Takes over as Carolina kicker

Gonzalez was signed by Carolina off Detroit's practice squad Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the Panthers' official site reports.

The Panthers will make a change at kicker following their Week 1 win over the Jets, bringing in Gonzalez to replace Ryan Santoso, who was waived after missing an extra-point attempt in the victory. Though he lost out in a job battle with Austin Seibert in the preseason for the Lions' kicking job, Gonzalez was one of the more experienced options available for Carolina to add to the roster. The 26-year-old has seen NFL action in each of the past five seasons with either the Cardinals or Browns, converting field goals at a 78 percent clip and maintaining a 94.6 percent success rate on extra-point attempts for his career.
