Carolina has been looking for veteran defensive back help recently, as they’ve met with both Stevie Brown and Donte Whitner. They’ll now also look at Wright, who started 21 games over the past two seasons with Tampa. He posted 76 tackles from 2014-15, but was scheduled to make $1.75MM this year, necessitating his release.

The Panthers are now back up to 75 players following the signing of Wright — they had been at 74 following a recent round of cuts.
