One fell swoop... James Anderson and Thomas Davis resigned to 5 year deals, more FAs too

Of all the surprises today these were easily the most predictable as the Carolina Panthers locked up their bookending OLBs to 5 year contracts. I say these were predictable signings because we already knew both wanted to return, we knew the Panthers wanted both of them to return and they were both meeting with the team today... connect the dots, it was easy.

While we don't currently have a dollar amount for the deals, what we do know is that these moves truly solidify a Panthers' defense in all the areas it needed to be supported. Should Davis be healthy the Panthers have arguably the deepest collection of LBs in the NFL, which gives Sean McDermott and Ron Rivera plenty of tools to work with in building the new Carolina Panthers' defense. 

In addition to Davis and Anderson the Panthers added former Dallas Cowboy CB Cletis Gordon (also formerly of San Diego) and S De'Von Hall of the Bucs to add some depth at both positions. 

This will likely close day two, hands down the busiest FA day in Carolina Panthers' history...
