The Panthers got a deal when they signed free agent safety Eric Reid. On Thursday morning , Carolina added some much needed help to their roster when they signed the safety. The Pro Bowler’s one-year contract with the Panthers is worth up to $2 million with play-time and Pro Bowl incentives as well as per-game roster bonuses. The Panthers released Kurt Coleman in the offseason who had been with the franchise for three seasons. Coleman was previously signed to a three-year, $17 million contract extension. Even if Reid maximizes his deal, the Panthers will still be paying him less than what Coleman was worth. In his five years with the San Francisco 49ers, Reid recorded 375 tackles, 10 interceptions Youth Greg Olsen Jersey , 34 passes defended, and two forced fumbles.Before entering Week 3, veteran Da’Norris Searcy was placed on injured reserve after suffering his second concussion in a month. The Panthers were already thin at the safety position and it showed on Sunday. Colin Jones and Rashaan Gaulden struggled in coverage against the Bengals. The Panthers needed an answer fast, and they got one. Reid is physical and he has the ability to make plays. He’s also extremely versatile. He played safety, slot cornerback Youth Ryan Kalil Jersey , off-ball linebacker and edge with the 49ers in 2017. Reid is capable of tackles, tight coverage, and he forces turnovers. The Panthers got a steal out of Reid. If for whatever reason things don’t work out with the 26-year old, there’s no long-term commitment and dead money involved.Panthers 33 Giants 31: 5 winners and 3 losers from Carolina’s Week 4 win The Carolina Panthers’ 33-31 victory over the New York Giants in week four was an ugly and sloppy game rife with penalties and mental mistakes.It was also prime time for the Panthers to go into “Cardiac Cats” mode to steal a win at home against a hapless (but hungry) Giants squad.

However, Bradberry gave as good as he got in his high profile match-up.He prevented an Odell Beckham Jr. touchdown in the first half by breaking up two passes.Curtis Samuel:Samuel returned to action after missing three games due to a medical procedure on his heart, and made his presence felt on his first reception of the season.The 5’11 speedster hauled in a catch from Cam Newton and scampered to the end zone and through a stunning number of missed tackles for a 25 yard touchdown Color Rush Taylor Moton Jersey , Graham Gano:After the game, Newton said that Graham put the team on his back (or toe) today.
