Panthers sign Thomas DeCoud to two-year deal

The Carolina Panthers signed former Atlanta Falcons safety Thomas DeCoud to a two-year contract.

"Thomas provides a veteran in the secondary who is familiar with the NFC South and has been a very solid player," coach Ron Rivera said. "We are pleased to add him to a safety group that has good experience and production."

He visited the Panthers this week.

He previously visited the Detroit Lions.

DeCoud was a Pro Bowl selection in 2012, but was due a $4.2 million base salary in 2014 and was released.

The Falcons saved $3 million in salary-cap space by cutting DeCoud.
