Eason signs futures contract with NFL’s Panthers
Former Lake Stevens High School star quarterback Jacob Eason signed a reserve/future contract with the NFL’s Carolina Panthers, returning to the franchise where he spent part of the 2022 season.
Eason, who’s been in the NFL since being drafted in 2020, is coming off a 2022 season that saw him bounce around the league. He spent the offseason with the Seattle Seahawks, but was waived before the season began. He spent time on both the Panthers’ practice squad and 53-man roster and appeared in one game before being released in November. He later joined the San Francisco 49ers’ practice squad before being released just before the regular season ended.
Signing a reserve/future contract means Eason is not a part of the Panthers’ 53-man roster, but is a part of the team’s 90-man offseason roster.
