Panthers add D.J. Moore to secondary

D.J. Moore AP

The Panthers made another cheap secondary addition, signing former Bears cornerback D.J. Moore to a one-year deal.

That news comes from Moore himself, so the sourcing is solid, unless he pulled an Antwan Barnes.

Moore’s from Spartanburg, S.C., where the Panthers hold training camp, so there was an easy draw. The fact that the Bears didn’t want him back after he intercepted 10 passes the last three seasons made the reunion easier.

The Panthers have also signed veteran corner Drayton Florence, so this gives them another sufficiently proficient player in a secondary that lacked any kind of depth after Chris Gamble was released and Captain Munnerlyn was allowed to walk into free agency.

    They can add whatever they want to add. It will not stop Chip Kellys intricate spread / read 11 headed offensive monster machine and their world domination tour 2013. And theres simply nothing that they can do about it.

    Since 2010, every single Panther CB combined has intercepted a grand total of 12 balls.

    This former Bears DB Moore alone has Intercepted 10 in the same time?

    Sounds like an upgrade to me.

    As a Bear fan, this is a loss for us and a nice gain for Carolina. This guy is always around the ball and there when you need him!

    Like this signing. Didn’t over pay and he’s a solid player that is productive. He was good at Vandy too. There doesn’t seem to be any apparent risk to this pick up.

    Sounds like a good signing to me! Maybe he’ll turn out to be one of the guys that helps ignite the Panthers this year! We looked to be getting it together during the second half of last season. I sure hope we continue where we left off…..on a roll! Sure hope he gels with this team!
