Panthers are trying to sign Colin Cole and have Thomas Decoud in for a visit
According to the Charlotte Observer the Carolina Panthers are not done trying to make their team better. The team will have Thomas Decoud the former Atlanta Falcons starting safety in for a visit and the team is also trying to sign Colin Cole, who was a very solid player last year.
• Free agent safety Thomas DeCoud arrives in Charlotte on Sunday for a two-day visit with the Panthers. DeCoud, a Pro Bowler with Atlanta two years ago, struggled with the rest of the Falcons’ defense in 2013. But DeCoud – like newcomer Roman Harper – has a vast knowledge of the NFC South. Worst-case scenario, DeCoud would be a proven backup if Charles Godfrey recovers from Achilles surgery and agrees to restructure his deal.
• The Panthers are in contract talks with defensive tackle Colin Cole, a free agent who essentially came off his couch to start 13 games last year for the league’s top-ranked defense. Cole, 33, who made the veteran minimum salary of $840,000 in his first season with Carolina, isn’t a guy who’s going to fill up a stat sheet. But at 6-2 and 335 pounds, he is a space-eater who played well in 2013 after being out of football for two years.
