The Panthers have agreed to terms with DT Antwon Burton after a workout this morning, his agent confirmed.The 26-year-old Burton's not a household name, but he is the kind of big body (6-2, 325) they needed to fill the Maake Kemoeatu- Louis Leonard hole.
Burton was in camp with St. Louis this summer, and had also spent time with Kansas City, Cincinnati and Denver.
Gantt also offers this assessment of how Leonard was playing prior to his injury:
Leonard was playing well at the time of his injury, and appeared to have made the starting job his own whether Nick Hayden came back quickly from his toe problem or not.
Well at least it appears we will have plenty of depth to choose from at the position next year.
