Panthers agree to one-year deal with Antoine Cason

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.

    That Panther D-line can make a weak secondary look pretty good.

    “She lies and says she’s in love with him, can’t find a Gettleman…”

    “Dumpster-diving” worked fine last year.

    Although I am still less than thrilled with Dave Gettleman’s treatment of Steve Smith. I sincerely hope that Mr. Gettleman’s talent evaluation skills once again prove Svengali like both in Free agency and the draft as they did last year. If not, Panther Nation will be ready to run him out of town on a rail.

    Going out to spend a ton of money in free agency doesn’t always mean making your team a winner. In fact, it is usually the opposite.

    As a season ticket holder I can tell you that he’s a good cb. He won’t make amazing plays, you won’t see him get burned much and he’s got the ability if the QB messes up he’ll int the ball.
    I liked Cason, but I wouldn’t want him on the other teams #1. Peterson took care of that well.
    If he’s going to take the #2 you got a good player. If he’s your #1…it’s gonna be a little rough.

    Played well for Rivera in San Diego. He’ll look good playing behind that front 7, then go ruin some mediocre team’s salary cap after he has a solid season in Carolina.

    if you need a corner that will play soft like a roll of charmin and only give up 10 yard out patterns for 1st downs then Cason is your man…..he was terrible in San Diego and they really need corners and he wasn’t even a thought….good luck Panthers and my prediction is that he will be on the bench sooner than later

    Still better than any starting CB in San Diego last season.

    Now that we’ve had some time to calm down after the terrible treatment of Smith, we can see that DG is doing what he can given the limits placed on him by the rotten comments of his newspaper reporter predecessor. If we can get a stud WR in the draft and if Cotchery and Underwood pan out like Ted Ginn did, we’ll be just fine.

    contracts, not comments. Need more coffee…
