Less-generous types might refer to it as dumpster-diving.

But the Panthers continue to poke around for second-wave free agent bargains, and may have found another.

A league source tells PFT the Panthers have agreed to a one-year deal with cornerback Antoine Cason.

Cason played well for Ron Rivera in San Diego, but barely played for the Cardinals last year.

But he gets a chance to prove himself behind a good front seven, which could work out for both parties.

Panthers General Manager Dave Gettleman has done good business on one-year deals, helping safety Mike Mitchell and wide receiver Ted Ginn get rich this offseason after getting a cheap year out of them.

Cason is the next to have that chance, but he won’t be the last.
