Panthers re-sign Pettiti

The Carolina Panthers have spent the bulk of their offseason bidding goodbye to big-ticket veterans in free agency or by other means.

This morning they made a modest addition by re-signing veteran offensive lineman Rob Pettiti, according to the Twitter account of veteran agent Ralph Cindrich, who is carving out a small niche for himself as a newsmaker on the social media Web site. Pettiti finished 2009 on Carolina’s roster after a run in the UFL with the Florida Tuskers.

Pettiti has significant NFL experience. He started 16 games as a rookie for the Dallas Cowboys in 2005. He’s considered a backup at this point, but will provide depth for the Panthers.
