Carolina’s curious decisions about cornerbacks Rasul Douglas and Corn Elder

The Panthers front office has been active in shoring up several positions of need throughout free agency. This includes inking cornerback Rashaan Melvin to a one-year deal to help bolster a critical position in today’s pass-happy NFL. But as more and more time passes, I continue to wonder why Carolina’s brass hasn’t re-signed Rasul Douglas and let Corn Elder walk into the waiting arms of the Detroit Lions.

The team’s current crop of Panthers corners doesn’t instill a lot of confidence. Donte Jackson has shown flashes of being a legitimate No. 2 corner but he struggles to stay healthy.
