The Carolina Panthers continue to make small cost friendly moves to improve the team. On Thursday, signing 12-year-veteran cornerback Charles “Peanut” Tillman to a 1-year 3.05 million dollar deal. I love this because not only do I think he is still a good player he can also mentor the young guys in the secondary. He is another veteran player that’s been through it all and should rub off on the young guys.
He has had a great career with 36 interceptions and a jaw-dropping 42 forced fumbles trust many wide receivers and running backs will see him in their nightmares, that patented punch has been his trademark and will never be duplicated. Tillman also reunites with Head Coach Ron Riviera who was the defensive coordinator for the Bears from 04-06 so there is already some familiarity, so the transition should be seamless. The only concern is the fact that he has only played ten games the past 2 due to injury. If he stays healthy, he can be a great asset to this team.
The Panthers have done it again, addressing a need because they got torched in the playoff game against Seattle. This signing should definitely shore up that area and make quarterbacks think twice about throwing to the Legion of Whom. Also he is a great guy out in the community a former Man of the year award winner this guy is the total package. Welcome to the Carolinas Chris Glad to have you! Go Panthers!
