Manhertz is re-signing with the Panthers on a two-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
The 26-year-old caught two passes on 344 offensive snaps in 2018, highlighted by a 50-yard touchdown reception on a fourth-down pass from running back Christian McCaffrey in Week 15 against New Orleans. With fellow tight ends Greg Olsen (foot) and Ian Thomas both under contract for 2019, it appears Manhertz is headed for another season working as a blocking specialist.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Manhertz is competing to win the Panthers' third tight end spot during training camp. The 25-year-old played four games for the team last season, boosting his chances of maintaining his position.
Manhertz will compete for a roster spot as a backup tight end, but the former Canisius product is unlikely to have a fantasy impact, as he's firmly behind, at a minimum, Coby Fleeer and Josh Hill on the depth chart.
Manhertz is a big tight end early enough in his playing career that he will be a candidate for the Buffalo practice squad.
