Thomas DeCoud is staying in the NFC South.

The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday that they have signed the veteran safety to a two-year contract. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, per a source who has seen the contract, that the deal is worth up to $3.75 million with a $500,000 signing bonus. DeCoud spent his first six seasons with the Atlanta Falcons before his release last month.


DeCoud joins a safety group in Carolina that includes veterans Roman Harper and Charles Godfrey. Harper signed a two-year deal with the Panthers last month after eight seasons with the New Orleans Saints. Godfrey is making his return from surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

DeCoud, 29, was met by a quiet market upon his release by the Falcons after a down season, but should see plenty of action in a secondary that looks shaky on paper.

I wish that I could say, "I can't wait to exploit him," but the Falcons rarely do anything to exploit poor safety play.

Well, Carolina can probably count on at least 2 good games a year from him.

On a separate note I'm still amazed that Carolina has invested what they have into Cam Newton but haven't made any real effort (outside of Avant) to add some weapons to the roster for Newton. You'd think coming into this off season that would have been on of their top priorities. They must plan on burning a 1st or 2nd on WR at minimum.

I've got this feeling in my gut that this will somehow haunt us...
