Browns signed DT Sione Fua.
He's taking the roster spot of Armonty Bryant (knee), who was officially placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Sua appeared in 24 games between 2011-12, but made just five total appearances between the Broncos and Panthers last season. He's mere depth unlikely to make it through the end of the season in Cleveland. Tue, Oct 14, 2014 04:06:00 PM

Date:

Broncos waived/released DT Sione Fua, LB L.J. Fort, CB Jordan Sullen, CB Jerome Murphy, TE Cameron Morrah and TE Jameson Konz.

Sua was signed last November, and active for two games down the stretch. He did not appear during the Broncos' playoff run. The 2011 third-round pick of the Panthers was limited to five games between Denver and Carolina last season. He'll search for reserve work.

Broncos signed DT Sione Fua.

Fua takes the roster spot of DT Kevin Vickerson (hip), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. Fua was the No. 97 overall pick in the 2011 draft by the Panthers and will provide depth as the No. 4 defensive tackle.

Panthers waived OL/DL Sione Fua.

The former defensive tackle was moved to the offensive line just last week, but the Panthers clearly didn't like the early practice returns. A 2011 third-rounder, Fua was one of former GM Marty Hurney's myriad draft misses. Sua had played just 53 snaps before his position switch, and was a disaster in 2012. He's still only 25, however.

Panthers DT Sione Fua has been moved to the offensive line.

Fua, a 2011 third-rounder out of Stanford, has never played on the offensive line in his high school, college, or professional careers. The Carolina offensive line has been decimated by injuries in recent weeks. Fua has played just 53 snaps this season, so learning another position could help him stick around.

Panthers re-signed DT Sione Fua.

Fua was waived at final cuts. Thanks to Garry Williams' season-ending knee injury, a roster spot opened back up.

Panthers waived DT Sione Fua.

A third-round pick of former GM Marty Hurney in 2011, Fua contributed just 22 tackles in his two seasons. They now have just one player remaining from their 2011 draft class (Cam Newton) on the active roster.

Panthers placed DT Sione Fua (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Fua suffered a "significant" right hamstring injury in what he termed a "freak accident" during warmups last week. Fua managed just nine tackles while starting every game as a rookie. He graded out as well below average in Pro Football Focus' metrics.

Panthers DT Sione Fua was held out of Sunday's win after suffering a hamstring injury in pre-game warmups.

"It was just a freak accident," said Fua, who is unsure of how much time he may miss. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday. A third-round rookie, Fua had started every game before yesterday. He has just nine tackles and zero sacks.
Mon, Dec 5, 2011 11:27:00 AM

Third-rounder Sione Fua and Corvey Irvin are listed as the Panthers' starting defensive tackles on the first depth chart of training camp.

The Panthers' run defense took a hit when Ron Edwards was lost to a torn triceps. Fua isn't a special talent, and 2009 third-rounder Irvin spent the 2010 season on the practice squad after being waived in September. This will remain an inviting matchup for fantasy backs.
Tue, Aug 9, 2011 04:42:00 PM

Panthers selected Stanford DL Sione Fua with the No. 97 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Fua played nose tackle in Vic Fangio's "multiple" (mostly 3-4) scheme at Stanford, and measured in at the Senior Bowl at 6-foot-2, 307. Not a special talent, he's basically depth chart filler at a position of glaring weakness in Carolina. Fua totaled 16 tackles for loss and nine sacks in his career. He sat out the 2007 season, going on a church mission.
