Antoine Cason, a 7th year player most recently with the Cardinals, is
about to become a Carolina Panther.
A veteran of the Chargers' #1 defense as a starter in 2010, Cason
started two more years for Ron Rivera's replacements before being the
nickel for the Cardinals' 6th overall defense last year.
The 6'1, 195 lb, Arizona native is the long, lean type corner that
Rivera tends to prefer. Active in run support, this is a good fit for
Across from him they have Melvin White; they have depth guys like James
Dockery and Josh Norman. They aren't going to turn guys down, but with
other needs looming they might do one more veteran like Drayton Florence
or draft a guy. Cason might end up working the slot, providing the need
for an outside guy like Florence to work.
So, adding in Cason and Roman Harper, the team has some experience in
the defensive secondary and would assumedly have up to 10 of 11 spots
covered, excepting what they want to do at FS. It's not completely
inconceivable they draft almost all offense at this rate.
