According to Geoff Mosher of Comcast Sports, free agent S Quintin Mikell is having initial conversations with the Panthers.
Mikell, 33, graded out as the No. 5 safety in the NFL, according to ProFootball Focus but was released by the Rams in March due to age concerns. Mosher mentions that a deal could get done soon but there has been little interest in him in the free agent market.
As of now the Panthers have S’s Mike Mitchell, D.J. Campbell, and undrafted free agent Robert Lester, so signing Mikell would be a huge upgrade for the Panthers secondary. If the Panthers do sign Mikell it will likely be a one-year contract to prove that age will not be a factor going forward.
