Cardinal Spellman High School graduate Chris Manhertz is the No. 2 tight end for the Carolina Panthers.
Manhertz entered the preseason as the No. 3 tight end on the team’s depth chart. He’ll serve as the backup for Greg Olsen, who has averaged over 75 receptions during the last five seasons.
Manhertz, who played collegiate basketball at Canisius College in Buffalo, caught one pass for 10 yards in seven games for the Panthers and New Orleans Saints in 2016. He spent the entire 2015 season on the Saints practice squad.
