Replacements picked, no big names.... shock! horror!

A Carolina native returns to NC

The names won't move the needle, but then again we didn't expect them to. Tonight the Carolina Panthers have signed DTs Ogemi Nwagbuo, formerly of the San Diego Chargers and NC native DeMario Pressley most recently with the Denver Broncos.

Nwagbuo played in 15 games last season in Ron Rivera's defense and totaled 19 tackles. The 25 year old out of Michigan State adds some size at the position as he weighs in at 312 lbs and clearly he's a player Ron Rivera was happy to bring in, the next Charger in line for the Panthers.

DeMario Pressley is a more interesting case. A 5th round pick of the New Orleans Saints in 2008 the Greensboro, NC native and NC State alum was on injured reserve his first season and cut by the Saints in 2010. He's bounced around numerous teams before arriving in Carolina, and despite not playing a down in a few years he has a Superbowl ring which he won with the Saints.
