Panthers agree to terms with CB Martin
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Panthers have come to terms with second-round pick Sherrod Martin, putting all Carolina rookies under contract before the start of training camp.
The cornerback from Troy gets a four-year deal. Agent Hadley Engelhard did not reveal financial figures. The agreement Friday comes two days before the Panthers report to camp.
It marks the second straight season the Panthers have avoided a rookie holdout. First-rounder Jon Beason missed the first eight days of training camp in 2007.
