DJ Chark has signed a contract with the Carolina Panthers, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The Panthers will be the third team in three years for the veteran wide receiver. Last season with the Lions, Chark had 30 receptions for 502 yards and three touchdowns. The Panthers also signed Adam Thielen earlier this week, and as of now, those two sit atop the depth chart at wide receiver.

Carolina traded a small fortune to the Chicago Bears for the first overall draft pick next month, and with that selection, they are expected to draft what they hope will be their quarterback of the future. Thielen and Chark may just be the beginning on this team surrounding that top pick with weapons, as they will want to ensure he has everything needed to succeed in the NFL.

Will the Panthers succeed this season? Probably not, but they are playing in what most consider the worst division in the league. Carolina is +270 to win the NFC South this season. You can find the odds for every team to win their division on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
