Carolina Panthers claim for Eskimos receiver Brandon Zylstra

One of the best receivers in the recent history of the CFL has been claimed by the Carolina Panthers.

Zylstra was cut by his hometown Minnesota Vikings Saturday after spending the entire 2018 season with the club. He recorded one reception as an NFL rookie for 23 yards. The Vikings kept just four receivers on the active roster.

Zylstra recorded 134 receptions for 2,195 yards and eight touchdowns in just 22 games with Edmonton.
