AP Sources: Panthers Agree To Deal With DT Cole

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Two people familiar with the situation say free agent defensive tackle Colin Cole will remain with the Carolina Panthers after agreeing to a one-year contract.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Tuesday because the deal hasn't been made official.

Financial terms were not available.

Cole, 33, started 13 games last season for Carolina's second-ranked defense and had 15 tackles and one sack. He's not the type to fill up a stat sheet, with his primary responsibility being to take up blockers at the point of attack, allowing linebackers freedom to run and make plays.

The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Cole has spent eight seasons in the NFL and started 47 games. Prior to joining the Panthers he spent time with Minnesota, Detroit, Green Bay and Seattle.
