With the majority of the free-agent signings and the NFL draft in the rear-view mirror, the Carolina Panthers' personnel is close to being set in stone. That being said, it's never too late to make an addition that has the potential to improve the current roster.
Since the end of the 2012 season, Carolina made changes across the board, although the moves made at defensive tackle and cornerback were the most notable.
Gone is nose tackle Ron Edwards, as the 13-year veteran simply couldn't stay on the field. Rookie GM David Gettleman used the team's first two draft picks on defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Kawann Short.
The re-signing of Dwan Edwards, along the additions of Lotulelei and Short, should turn last year's weakness along the interior of the defensive line into a strength when the new season kicks off.
At cornerback, the Panthers were forced to cut Chris Gamble, a move that was necessary but unfortunate. Even though Gamble struggled to stay healthy, he was a game-changer when on the field.
Currently, Captain Munnerlyn and Josh Norman are slated to start at corner with Drayton Florence manning the nickelback position. Unfortunately, that trio doesn't do much to inspire confidence, which is extremely troubling considering the explosive offensive attacks that call the NFC South home.
Even though the Panthers are limited financially, they should at least call the following free agents to gauge their interest.
