    One of the joys of training camp is that almost every year there is a player, or sometimes players, that arrive as almost complete unknowns before going on to make enough of an impact to make the roster. While there is still a lot of time between now and final roster cuts, there is one name that has already started to come out of Matt Rhule's mouth with some consistency.

    "I don't you've been at a practice where Sean Chandler hasn't batted a ball or intercepted a ball" Rhule said to the media following Sunday's practice. "He plays with tremendous energy, when he makes a thud or something the whole defense comes running out."

    So, who is Sean Chandler, and what is standing between him and a roster spot?

    Well, like a lot of current Panthers, Chandler started out at Temple where he played under Rhule and defensive coordinator Phil Snow. While he went undrafted back in 2018, he managed to make the Giants' initial roster as a rookie and has spent the past three seasons alternating between the active roster and the practice squad, ultimately being claimed by the Panthers last October before once again finding himself back on a practice squad.

    Though he has yet to start an NFL game, he was a special teams regular throughout his first two seasons in New York and saw some playing time on defense here and there, especially late in his rookie year. This might not be how many players would hope their first three years in the league play-out, but Chandler is clear that his path this far has given him a great opportunity to continue his development.
