d to one-year Womens Curtis Samuel Jersey , $1 million contract with incentives Update 2: The details of the deal have been disclosed: It’s a one-year deal with $1 million in base salary and can increase to $2 million with incentives based on playing time and whether or not he makes the Pro Bowl, per Adam Schefter.Update 1: In a corresponding move to make room on the 53-man roster, the Panthers have waived cornerback Lorenzo Doss.The Carolina Panthers have signed safety Eric Reid to a one-year contract, according to multiple reports. In case you’re worried about this being #FakeNews, the Panthers have confirmed those reports on Twitter:The Panthers were desperately in need of a safety after placing Da’Norris Searcy on injured reserve after he sustained two concussions in less than a month, and Reid has been mentioned several times by us here at Cat Scratch Reader as the perfect replacement.Panthers general manager Marty Hurney and head coach Ron Rivera shared our sentiments, according to Jourdan Rodrigue:Reid gives the Panthers something they’ve needed for quite some time now—a young, good safety who can immediately make an impact on the secondary. They also scooped the entire NFC South in the process. The Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were each in need of safety help as much as, if not more than, the Panthers. The Falcons lost starter Keanu Neal in their season opener Womens Donte Jackson Jersey , the Bucs lost Chris Conte to a brutal stiff arm on Monday night, and the Saints are just plain bad. If you need football reasons to like this signing then there are three incontrovertibly good ones for you. Cody Ford would be a great addition to the Panthers’ offensive line if he’s still on the board in the second round."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomCarolina Panthers Film RoomPanthers 2019 NFL DraftFilm room scouting report on Oklahoma guard/tackle Cody FordNew,40commentsCody Ford would be a great addition to the Panthers’ offensive line if he’s still on the board in the second round.EDTShareTweetShareShareFilm room scouting report on Oklahoma guard/tackle Cody FordKevin Jairaj-USA TODAY SportsCody Ford played at Pineville High in Pineville, La. He was rated as a four-star recruit according to Rivals. He committed to Oklahoma over Arkansas, TCU, and Mississippi State. Ford started three games at left guard in 2016 before an injury prematurely ended his season. He played in every game in 2017, but only started four games which came at left guard. During his final year in Norman, Ford started every game at right tackle. He was named to the First-team All-Big 12 selection according to coaches.Ford’s athletic testing was a -0.4 sigma, which landed in the 34th percentile according to SPARQ. Film reviewFord’s experience at guard and tackle gives him the experience of having versatility. This is critical in today’s game because teams only carry around seven offensive linemen on a 53-man roster. I knew Oklahoma’s offensive line was great, but I had no clue how effective of a pass blocker Ford is. He has a clean kick slide and usually gains enough depth to protect the edge. According to Sports Info Solutions, he only blew 2 blocks in pass protection.Note: All clips are at RT. Ford is No. 74.Just last week, I heaped praise on TCU edge rusher Ben Banogu. Outside of maybe one or two plays DJ Moore Jersey White , Ford shut him down. He took good angles and he timed his hand punches perfectly. When Ford does get his chest exposed, he rarely flusters. As seen on this play, he drops his hips at contact, bends his knees, and anchors. He has outstanding lower body strength, which gives him a solid foundation in both the run and pass. As the edge rusher attempts a long arm on Ford, he doesn’t get phased. He understands how to use his hands against various rushes, which will certainly help his transition.Ford could stand to improve with his hand placement. He has a tendency to miss the target, which gives quicker edge rushers to elude him inside or outside. Ford is a mauler in the run game. According to Sports Info Solutions, Oklahoma ran 4.4 yards before contact when running to his gap. Ford is a good mover in space. He pulls across the formation, identifies the target, and gains momentum to land a solid block.As Ford moves to the second level https://www.pantherslockerroom.com/authentic-donte-jackson-jersey , he takes a measured approach to look for work. Once he identifies the linebacker, he lands the punch on the outside shoulder of the linebacker to keep the alley clean for the running back.Ford tested as a below average athlete, but he looked fluid moving laterally. Oklahoma ran an even mixture of zone and gap runs (43.1% zone, 45.1% gap) according to Sports Info Solutions. Ford is scheme versatile. Ford is a mauler who loves to act like a bully. He moves defenders with his functional strength, but the power he generates from his entire body is fun to watch. I mean, on each of these clips he’s moving defenders. Fit with CarolinaFord was a left guard for the Sooners before 2018. If he is drafted by Carolina, that’s where he should play. The Panthers have two NFL starting right tackles on their roster. They don’t need another. Ford has the functional strength, quick athleticism, and intelligence to be a fantastic guard. He moves well in space, but more importantly his pass protection skill set is above average. I will be surprised if Ford is still on the board in the second round, but Carolina should sprint to the podium if he is.
