Panthers sign LB Jason Trusnik to one-year deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Panthers have signed linebacker Jason Trusnik to a one-year deal, the team announced.

"Jason is an experienced player who adds more competition to the linebacker position and has also been a special teams ace," coach Ron Rivera said. "I expect him to come in and be a leader. Even though he is new to us, he's got veteran savvy to him."

Trusnik made six starts while playing all 16 games with the Dolphins in 2014, racking up 48 tackles and intercepting one pass.

"First, I want to earn respect from my new teammates and coaches," Trusnik said. "It's a new team and I have to earn that. I want to continue to be the leader that I've been in the past and make plays, whether that be on special teams or on defense."

Panthers OT Jonathan Martin excited about new opportunity
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Panthers offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is looking forward to being a part of the team, reports the team's official website. He also believes that being with the Panthers is an ideal fit.

"I'm excited to be a part of a team that's had a lot of success recently," Martin said. "I know a little bit about coach Ron Rivera and (offensive line) coach (John) Matsko and I'm excited about working with them and being successful here."

Martin, a former second-round draft choice of the Dolphins, was surprised by the fact that he only spent one year with the 49ers.

"It was a little surprising not being in San Francisco for another year, but that's the nature of the business," Martin said. "I'm glad I got another opportunity. I'm excited to be a part of this group."

Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman likes the experience that Martin brings to the team.

"Our goal is to build the strongest roster possible and add competition at every position,"Gettleman said. "Jonathan brings quality experience to our offensive line, having started 32 games in his career at both tackle spots."

Martin wants to become a better player, and he appreciates the opportunity given to him by the Panthers.

"At this point it is firmly in the past," Martin said. "I want to have a successful career playing football. I'm lucky to have gotten an opportunity here in Carolina."

Panthers sign RB Jordan Todman
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Panthers have signed running back Jordan Todman to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.

"Jordan is a veteran running back who has had some success in the league," coach Ron Rivera said in a statement. "We think he has some return skills and we are always looking to be good in that area. At running back, he brings versatility. He is stout and physical enough to run the ball up inside, but he's got the quickness and speed to get outside to the corner."

Todman racked up 186 yards on just 32 carries with the Jaguars in 2014 while adding 198 yards on 25 receptions and scoring twice. He also averaged 25.6 yards per return on 38 kickoff returns last season.
