2013 Carolina Panthers Free Agency: Panthers sign OL Travelle Wharton

Brian A. Westerholt

The Panthers have signed a familiar face to help with their struggling offensive line.

According to the official Twitter account of the Carolina Panthers, the team has agreed to terms on a contract with veteran free agent offensive lineman Travelle Wharton.

The terms of the deal are currently undisclosed, but given GM Dave Gettleman's recent dealings with veteran free agents, one would assume this is either a one or two year deal.

Wharton played for the Panthers for the first seven years of his career, so Panthers fans are aware of what he's capable of doing on the field. He brings much needed versatility to the offensive line as he can play either guard or tackle, and while it's unknown which position he will play at this time we do know that he should be able to step in and improve an offensive line that has struggled mightily so far in the preseason.

The Panthers will probably seek more offensive line help once other teams start making cuts in the coming days, so stay tuned for the possibility of bringing in more players to help keep franchise quarterback Cam Newton upright during the 2013 season.

As always, stay tuned to CSR for more information on Wharton's contract as we will provide the details when they are made available by the team.
