According to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, free agent running back Mike Tolbert is scheduled to visit with the Carolina Panthers.
If the Panthers end up signing Tolbert, it could mean the Panthers will likely place either DeAngelo Williams or Jonathan Stewart on the trade block. Person points out that it would likely be Stewart on the way out, since he’s going into the final year of his current deal and Williams just signed a mega-deal last offseason.
At the end of the day, if Tolbert ends up in Carolina, the Panthers will certainly have a new look to their back field.
