One team's trash: More help at CB on the way?

This morning we have yet another possible waiver pickup for the Carolina Panthers at cornerback with 2nd year player Trevard Lindley being cut by the Philadelphia Eagles today as they resigned Joselio Hanson to a two year contract. It's important to realize Lindley would have been a Sean McDermott selection during his final year in Philadelphia, and could add more depth to the already weak CB position.

A 4th round pick out of Kentucky in 2010, Lindley played in 11 games for the Eagles last year, starting one game. Over this time he amassed 23 tackles, 1 PDef and 1 INT. At 6-0, 178lbs he's larger than some of the CBs currently on the roster and due to his knowledge of McDermott's defense could contribute fairly quickly.

In looking at these waiver possibilities it's important not to compare them to Chris Gamble and Captain Munnerlyn at the top of the chart, but rather look at them in relation to R.J. Stanford and Josh Thomas at the bottom. In this way Lindley compares favorably, and I would be surprised if the Panthers didn't take another flier on a CB through waivers.
