A former Penn State safety has found a new home.

Per a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Nick Scott, who played at PSU from 2014-18, has signed with the Carolina Panthers.

Scott’s career started in 2019 with the LA Rams, who he stayed with for four seasons.

In his second-to-last season, Scott won a Super Bowl ring. After LA, Scott went to Cincinnati, where he appeared in all 17 of the Bengals’ games last year.

The team released Scott last week, but it didn’t take long for another to pick him up.

Scott is one of the better player stories of James Franklin’s tenure at Penn State, which started in 2014. He began his career as a running back before transitioning to defense. Now, he’s about to start Year 6 in the NFL.
