There are some benefits of going 2-14.
The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers claimed cornerback Darius Butler off waivers on Tuesday, adding depth to a position that sorely needs it. Butler was let go by the Patriots Tuesday just two years after they took him in the second round of the draft.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday that the Panthers didn’t see free agent Joselio Hanson as an upgrade. Butler hasn’t shown any reason to think he’s an upgrade either, but he comes at a cheaper price.
Which reminds us: Why hasn’t Joselio Hanson landed a gig? He’d upgrade plenty of rosters as a nickel back.
