CB Sanchez signs contract


CHARLOTTE – Cornerback Zach Sanchez, the Panthers' fifth-round draft choice, signed his contract Thursday as he and others descended on Bank of America Stadium in preparation for the start of rookie minicamp Friday.

A 5-11, 185-pounder from Oklahoma, Sanchez tied for fifth in the nation with seven interceptions last season after picking off a total of eight passes the previous two seasons. He was the last of three consecutive cornerbacks drafted by the Panthers, who have indicated Sanchez could figure into their plans at nickel corner.

The Panthers now have to make it official with just one of their five draft choices – first-round defensive tackle Vernon Butler.
