Panthers talk to Ryan Clark

The Panthers could be swapping safeties with Pittsburgh.

After losing free safety Mike Mitchell to the Steelers in free agency this week, the Panthers have had preliminary talks with former Steelers safety Ryan Clark, a league source said Friday.

Clark, who turns 35 in October, is coming off a 104-tackle season last year. He was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 2011 and 2012 seasons, when the Steelers had the league's No. 1 defense overall and versus the pass.

Clark has started at least 14 games each of the past six seasons. He has 15 career interceptions.

The Panthers brought New Orleans free agent safety Roman Harper in for a visit this week, although he left without a contract.

Just sign anyone we have heard of.

Clark would be a lot better than Harper, but he is probably only a one year solution.

I'd be happy if they just signed someone. (Other than Roman Harper, he's a scumbag)

People complained all of last year about how bad our O-line, secondary, and receivers were. 4/5 of our O-Line starters are returning, and the only reason our secondary had any kind of success at all was because of the play of our front seven, which is completely intact. Our receivers sucked last year, and none of them that were lost are irreplaceable, including Smith. Also, our best receiver, who is really a TE, is returning. CHIILL everyone.

Our oline was so called bad, because Cam held onto the ball too long!

I like the move. But, what are they doing? Cutting Steve and not replacing him? I thought the would sign a guy like Hakeem Nicks or Eric Decker. I think if you sign him to a one year deal he will be productive.

Name says it all defense did most the work last year
