Gavin Holmes – Baylor (25 y/o, 5’11, 200)

Gavin Holmes played for Baylor from 2017 to 2022 where he played in 31 games with 18 starts. He recorded 72 receptions for 927 yards and 7 touchdowns over his collegiate career. In his final season in 2022, he played in 12 games recording 26 catches for 517 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Holmes was recognized for his high level of play in 2022 being named Third Team All-Big 12 by Phil Steele. He was also an Honorable All-Big 12 Mention by the coaches as well as Second Team Academic All-Big 12 in 2022.

Holmes was sidelined for much of his college football career due to injury. He tore his ACL in 2017 9 games into his freshman season against Texas Tech. A year later his body rejected a ligament that was going to support his recovery.

Holmes had a strong pro day in 2013 running a 4.45 40-yard dash. He also did 4.46 seconds on the 20-yard shuttle, 7.15-second 3-con drill, 19 bench reps (225 pounds), a 36-inch vertical, and a 10’03” broad jump.

He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tennessee Titans in 2023 although we waived a couple of days before the final cut date. Holmes caught 2 passes for 19 yards in the preseason.

The signing comes 1 day after the Panthers waived wide receiver Jordan Suell.
