Tony Fiammetta Signs His Contract With Carolina Panthers

Former Syracuse Orange fullback Tony Fiammetta, who was drafted in the 4th round (128th overall), has officially signed his rookie contract with the Carolina Panthers. Carolina drafted two players in the 4th round and signed both at the same time (the other being Texas A&M running back Mike Goodson). No contract details were announced on the Carolina Panthers official website, which is linked above.
He still has an uphill battle since he is facing a local favorite Brad Hoover who has faced competition in the past but remained the teams starting fullback. Unless for some reason, they keep both men and maybe utilize one for special teams or something, which I personally am rooting to see happen. Best of luck to #42 Tony Fiammetta in a Panthers jersey, especially coming from a Carolina fan myself who will enjoy rooting him on.
