Antoine Cason DB BAL 11 months ago

UPDATE: Cason, a free agent, will miss the entire 2015 season after undergoing surgery on his right foot Tuesday, reports. "Had surgery this morning to fix an ongoing problem," Cason wrote on Instagram.

The 28-year-old started 11 games for the Panthers last year, recording 58 tackles, four forced fumbles and two interceptions before being released after Week 13. He was then picked up by the Ravens and played in two games, failing to record any stats in either contest.

Cason signed with the Ravens on Tuesday, EAG Sports Management reports.

Cason started 11 games for the Panthers this season, but he was struggling to keep up in coverage, and was thus released last Tuesday. Just one week later, he's signing with a team that has minimal depth at cornerback, which could leave Cason as the No. 3 or 4 corner from the get-go.

The Panthers released Cason on Tuesday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Cason started 11 of 12 games for the Panthers this season, but he graded out extremely poorly and was benched last week, so the Panthers decided to move on. Bene Benwikere is the favorite to replace Cason in the Panthers' starting lineup.

Cason registered eight tackles (seven solo) and one interception during Sunday's game versus Cincinnati.

Cason has displayed an uncanny nose for the ball through his first six games for the Panthers, as he's already forced three fumbles, intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble as well. Moreover, Cason boasts 42 tackles (32 solo) on the campaign, offering great production from a cornerback.

Cason tallied six tackles (three solo), one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery during Sunday's comeback win over the Bears.

Cason has been outstanding since arriving from Arizona this offseason. As one of the Panthers' starting cornerbacks, Cason has totaled 34 tackles (25 solo), forced three fumbles, and notched an interception.

Cason recorded 10 tackles (seven solo), forced two fumbles, and recovered one fumble in an outstanding performance Sunday against the Lions.

Cason, who nabbed an interception in his Panthers' debut last week, not only reached double figures in tackles against the Lions, but also forced a turnover and generally held star wideout Calvin Johnson at bay Sunday. Through two games with the Panthers, Cason now boasts 19 tackles, marking great production from a cornerback. In short, the veteran has enjoyed his reunion with coach Ron Rivera to begin this season.

Cason led the Panthers with nine tackles (all solo) and also intercepted a pass in Sunday's season opening win over the Buccaneers.

Cason performed admirably in his Panthers debut, providing strong run support while also leading the team with two passes defended, including an interception. As Carolina's No. 1 cornerback, Cason could benefit from the Panthers' stout front-seven forcing quarterbacks into ill-advised throws this season, but he should have his hands full against Lions' wideout Calvin Johnson next Sunday.

The Charlotte Observer believes CB Antoine Cason will enter training camp atop the depth chart.

Cason signed a one-year deal with Carolina after playing sparingly in Arizona last season. A 2008 first-round pick of the Chargers, Cason has a chance to rehab his career in Carolina. The front seven in Carolina takes so much pressure off the secondary even middling players like Captain Munnerlyn and Drayton Florence were able to flourish last season. Cason could thrive in that situation, earning himself a hefty payday next offseason.

Panthers agreed to terms with CB Antoine Cason on a one-year contract.

A 2008 first-round pick of the Chargers, Cason is now on his third NFL team. He played sparingly in Arizona last season, drawing below-average marks in coverage but making a heroic pick-six of Ryan Fitzpatrick in the Cards' Week 15 overtime win against Tennessee. Cason is a big-bodied corner going on age 28. He'll compete for playing time in a limited-talent Carolina secondary.

Free agent CB Antoine Cason will visit the Panthers.

The ex-Charger played only 169 defensive snaps for the Cardinals last season, struggling in coverage. He's still only 27, however, and just one year removed from being a 16-game starter. Cason would be a sensible, cheap flier for a team with a beastly front seven that takes pressure off its secondary.
