Earlier this month, B.J. Emmons was released from the Las Vegas Raiders’ practice squad. The 24-year-old running back is now a free agent looking for a new opportunity. And he could be getting one soon.

On Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson tweeted that Emmons was among several running backs who has worked out for the Carolina Panthers. It’s no surprise that the Panthers may be looking to add RB depth after Christian McCaffrey injured his hamstring in their Thursday win over the Houston Texans.

Emmons went undrafted earlier this year before signing with the Seattle Seahawks. However, he couldn’t earn a roster spot with them or the Raiders.

Emmons is a former Alabama running back who spent 1 season with the Crimson Tide in 2016. He then transferred to Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College, before finishing his college career with 2 seasons at Florida Atlantic from 2019-20.

According to Wilson, Emmons was joined by Duke Johnson, Dontrell Hilliard and Ito Smith as the running backs who worked out for Carolina on Friday.

If any of those RBs get signed by the Panthers, it’s possible they could get onto the field. The team is currently relying on rookie Chuba Hubbard and Royce Freeman for the majority of work out of the backfield in McCaffrey’s absence.
