Panthers agree to terms with Rashaan Melvin


CHARLOTTE – The Panthers added to the secondary Thursday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with veteran cornerback Rashaan Melvin.

The 31-year-old Melvin signed with the Jaguars last spring, but opted out of the season for reasons related to COVID-19. The Jaguars released him Wednesday.

Originally entering the league as an undrafted rookie from Northern Illinois, Melvin has also spent time with the Buccaneers, Dolphins, Ravens, Patriots, Colts, Raiders, and Lions.

The Panthers had starter Donte Jackson, and second-year players Troy Pride Jr. and Stantley Thomas-Oliver III at cornerback, so depth was a necessity as they continue to work the market.

The Panthers also signed running back Darius Clark, who played at Newberry.
