The Carolina Panthers are bringing back defensive tackle Colin Cole, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Cole reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Panthers.

He started 13 games last season.

Cole was sidelined for the 2011 and 2012 seasons with ankle issues.

He played five years for the Green Bay Packers and two years for the Seattle Seahawks earlier in his career.
