Panthers sign USC's Norwood

The Panthers have signed rookie linebacker Eric Norwood, their fourth-round draft pick out of South Carolina.

Norwood is expected to be a pass-rushing specialist.

Norwood is South Carolina's career leader with 29 sacks. Coach John Fox has said he'll use Norwood at linebacker in passing situations and on special teams.

Wednesday's signing puts seven of Carolina's 10 draft picks under contract. Second-rounder Jimmy Clausen and third-round selections Brandon LaFell and Armanti Edwards remain unsigned.

The Panthers report to training camp on July 28.

This team is really going to be so much better than what some of the experts are saying. I can not wait until the regular season rolls around.

GO PANTHERS!
