Carolina has now signed all four of its exclusive rights free agents, previously signing fellow defensive end Efe Obada, safety Damian Parms and running back Elijah Hood. A player with less than two seasons of NFL experience whose contracts have expired are considered an exclusive rights free agent (ERFA). Cox and Obada are the two players with the most playing experience out of the group of four, and both have pretty good chances to make the roster this season the way things are shaping up right now. There is some chatter around the team that Cox is going to be moved inside to play one of the interior defensive line positions https://www.pantherslockerroom.com/authentic-will-grier-jersey , most likely the three technique.Moves like this continue to lend support to the idea that the Panthers are switching to a 3-4 defense, or at least making it a more prevalent part of a multiple front look. Though a 3-tech is not present in a 3-4 look, Cox would fit the mold of a strong side DE in that front.Either way, this is a solid cheap move to retain young talent with a chance to develop, and we’ll see what next season holds for the young man. We say good bye to one of our best"Julius Peppers is retiring from football after 17 years in the NFL. He doesn’t really need an introduction here. Between his years at UNC and his two stints with the Panthers, Peppers has been a sports legend in the Carolinas for longer than a lot of Panthers fans have been alive.He’s a modest man in spite of his unparalleled talent. His career was the length of two for a lot of people Womens Christian Miller Jersey , but it was closer to five for the average NFL player. That length is unimaginable for his position. There are a small handful of active players who are on pace to pass Peppers’ place (fourth) on the all-time sacks list. They are headlined by the likes of Von Miller, JJ Watt, and Cameron Wake. Everyone of them is a star, but it would be foolish to bet on any of them having a 17-year career. We, as Panthers fans, have been lucky enough to watch the career of one of the absolute best to ever play this game. He played it among peers that Jordan Scarlett Jersey , on their good days, could look almost as talented. We’ll be lucky to see his combination of dedication, humility, and superiority again. Peppers is family to the Carolinas. He grew up here and he played here. He didn’t just entertain us, he took care of us. His hurricane relief fund is one of the most public and straightforward initiatives started by a Panther to help this region in its time of need. He didn’t need to rehabilitate his image, he just did what you do for family.Both the Players Tribune article Blue Greg Van Roten Jersey , penned by Peppers, linked above and the Panthers.com piece here have video tributes to and from him. I dare you to watch them without a tissue at hand.The Carolina Panthers have been gifted with a number of leaders in their short history who have left indelible marks on the franchise and the region. The fire of Sam Mills and the resilience of Thomas Davis spring immediately to mind. Peppers may have been quieter in his approach to the game, at least publicly, but his mark will be no less important. The Panthers are a lesser team without him, but they will always be greater for having been a part of his career.
