CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have acquired wide receiver Kevin Norwood in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for an undisclosed 2017 draft choice.

Carolina has been searching for answers at wide receiver ever since Kelvin Benjamin went down with a season-ending injury.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound Norwood was a fourth-round draft choice by the Seahawks in 2014. He played nine games with two starts as a rookie, catching nine passes for 102 yards.

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said in a press release Monday that Norwood "has the size you look for along with toughness and smarts."

Gettleman said the Panthers had studied Norwood leading up to last year's draft.
