Panthers recruit S Sheldrick Redwine to train
The Carolina Panthers apparently prefer red over white. (Wait, are there even players with the last name “Whitewine” so we can make that guess?)
Regardless, Panthers.com’s Darin Gantt reported early Thursday evening that the team signed safety Sheldrick Redwine to their practice squad. It comes just hours after Carolina elevated fellow safety Kenny Robinson to an active roster amid their betting reshuffle.
The Panthers took another step on the practice squad Thursday afternoon. They released veteran security Doug Middleton and signed security Sheldrick Redwine.
Redwine was a former Browns fourth-round pick.

Redwine entered the NFL as the Cleveland Browns’ fourth-round selection in 2019. The University of Miami, Fla. Product spent two seasons there, scoring eight starts in 27 games. He recorded 75 tackles, one interception and three pass deflections.
Cleveland relinquished Redwine on Aug.31, making way for a new home with the New York Jets a week later. He had played two outings in New York in 2021, including the season opener in Carolina.
In the corresponding move to welcome Redwine, the team released security Doug Middleton, who was brought in on Wednesday.
