Carolina Panthers Re-Sign OL Chris Scott

In the flurry of cuts on Thursday, the Carolina Panthers did make a signing by agreeing to a one-year deal with offensive lineman Chris Scott

The Carolina Panthers made sure to keep their depth along the offensive line by re-signing Chris Scott to a one-year deal Thursday, according to the team's site. He has been with the Panthers the past three seasons and even started eight games in 2013, seven at right guard and one at left. He played in 13 games this past season as well as every postseason for the Panthers.

He has played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills prior to joining the Panthers however he played 31 of his 33 career games with Carolina.

The biggest value of Scott is that he can play pretty much every position along the offensive line. He has been in this offense for a number of years now and is familiar with the scheme. 

While the starting offensive line is not expected to have many changes, the depth at the position can. The team already released Nate Chandler and reserve guard Amini Silatolu is a free agent. While the move of re-signing Scott may not make headlines, these are the type of important moves the Panthers make that help them be successful during the season.
