He’s only been a Carolina Panther for a few days, but we know where Mac McCain III stands right now.

The Carolina Panthers released a depth chart ahead of its preseason opener with the New York Jets and McCain is currently listed as the fourth cornerback at his position.

The Panthers signed the former North Carolina A&T star on Friday during training camp as it prepares for the 2023 season. 

Mac McCain was cut in May shortly after he signed with the Detroit Lions on February 23, 2023. McMain, who went undrafted from NC A&T, initially joined the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent. He then signed with the Philadelphia Eagles before training camp and played in one game before being claimed off waivers by Denver again.

He returned to the Eagles after being waived for the second time by the Broncos.

The grandson of a member of the Greensboro Four, he is the namesake of a civil rights icon. Franklin McCain III took the family legacy from the Woolworth to the football field continuing his family traditions in Greensboro and at North Carolina A&T.

He was first-team all-MEAC and third-team AP FCS All-American as a true freshman in 2017 where he was tied for fifth in the nation with six interceptions and touchdowns.

An ACL tear ended his sophomore season and the first three games of the 2019 but McCain managed another first-team All-Mid Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) honor with 37 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass breakups and a touchdown.
