Gets workout with Saints

Cadet will work out with the Saints on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Cadet suited up for one game with the Panthers in 2018, but has not seen any other action since. The 30-year-old journeyman has played with six different teams since 2012, including two separate stints with the Saints. With Alvin Kamara (ankle) questionable for Week 7, it looks like New Orleans is looking for potential depth options at running back.

Suits up once in 2018

Cadet recorded 17 yards on 11 rushes and five yards on one reception while only appearing in one game in 2018.

Analysis: Cadet signed with the Panthers in the second half of the season but didn't play until Week 17, when the team was out of the playoff hunt. His 1.5 yards per carry made for an unimpressive performance overall. Cadet turns 30 next month and isn't likely to see anything more than a depth or special teams role in 2019.

Inactive in Week 11

Cadet (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Lions.

Analysis: As expected, the recently signed running back will be out of uniform in his first opportunity with the Panthers. Cadet is expected to have a third-down/change-of-pace role in coming weeks behind starter Christian McCaffrey and backup Cameron Artis-Payne.

Likely won't play Sunday

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said Thursday that he assumes Cadet will be inactive for Sunday's game against Detroit, Bryan Strickland of the Panthers' official site reports.

Analysis: Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday after the team decided to waive fellow running back C.J. Anderson. As evidenced by this news, Cadet might need some time to learn the playbook before he suits up in game action. If Cadet doesn't suit up Sunday, Cameron Artis-Payne will be in line for the reserve role behind bell-cow back Christian McCaffery.

Lands in Carolina

Cadet signed a one-year contract with the Panthers on Monday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Analysis: Cadet's place on Carolina's 53-man roster comes following the team's decision to waive veteran running back C.J. Anderson. Christian McCaffery remains the Panthers' clear bellow runner, so Cadet appears in line for a backup role alongside Cameron Artis-Payne.

Loses out on roster spot

Cadet was part of Saturday's roster cutdown, John Murphy of the Bills' official site reports.

Analysis: Cadet was in good standing for much of the summer, but Marcus Murphy had a great preseason and leapfrogged all the fringe running backs, leaving the Bills to choose Taiwan Jones over Cadet for the last spot. Cadet's a versatile player so we'd be surprised if he didn't end up with another team, with the Bills being a possibility as well if injuries strike.

Battling for roster spot

Cadet rushed six times for 73 yards -- including a 44-yard run -- and caught one of five targets for seven yards during Thursday's preseason game against Chicago.

Analysis: A surging Marcus Murphy didn't play in the game, leading most to believe he's a lock for a roster spot along with LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory. That would leave Cadet in a battle with Taiwan Jones for a final spot if the Bills keep four running backs to go with fullback Patrick DiMarco. Cadet probably offers more than Jones offensively and perhaps helped his case Thursday, but the latter is a better special teams player. There's a good chance one of the two is no longer a Bill come Saturday.
