Panthers add OL depth with Petitti

Update: Marcus Hudson has signed a 1-year contract.

The Panthers have added depth to the offensive line by signing RFA OT Rob Petitti to a one-year deal, according to his agent.

According to Darin Gantt, this is a good signing:

Petitti was a late-season injury replacement, after playing in the UFL last year. A one-time 16-game starter for Dallas, he’s at least a good complement to Geoff Schwartz and Garry Williams on the second line. He was a restricted free agent who they chose not to tender, but they made it clear to his agent from day one they wanted to bring him back.

This looks to me like nothing more than a  move to ensure that there is some veteran depth on the offensive line next season, and since Petitti is a cost-effective option, it’s a good move.

In other free agency news, the Panthers are also expected to meet with former San Francisco defensive back/special teamer Marcus Hudson soon. Could this be the man who replaces Dante Wesley on the ST unit?
