Miles Sanders To Sign Four-Year Deal With Carolina

Eric Hartline, USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles made the signing of Rashaad Penny official at 4pm on Wednesday and that left Miles Sanders without a spot on the roster.

Per Adam Caplan, Sanders will be joining the Carolina Panthers on a four-year deal.

Sanders will join Frank Reich’s offense and re-join Duce Staley.

Sanders racked up the first 1,000-yard season of his career in 2022 and played himself into what should be a pay day (though the money on the deal was not readily available).

Sanders would figure to be the lead back in Carolina, so it’s a good opportunity for more reps than he’s seen previously.

A Pittsburgh native, Penn State letterman and second-round pick of the Eagles, this would be the first time Sanders plays for a team that isn’t based in PA.

Update: The deal for Sanders is reportedly worth $25 million. That comes out to $6.25 APY and would net the Eagles a sixth-round compensatory pick based on the benchmarks set for the 2023 draft.

That $6.25 million mark is also notable as the Eagles will be paying Gainwell, Penny and Scott less than that combined.
