Carolina Panthers safety Tom Nelson (26) on Sunday at Wofford College in Spartanburg.

Safety Tom Nelson

Ht./Wt.: 5-11/200

College: Illinois State

NFL experience: Fourth year

The scoop: Nelson hasn’t seen a regular-season NFL snap since the 2011 season after two years in Philadelphia and one in Cincinnati. Nelson has made plays on the ball the past two days, but he has an uphill climb to unseat a safety and secure a final roster spot.

Twitter handle: @TNelson_9

Recent tweet: Thanks for all the support! Especially my ISU Redbirds and Hersey Huskies families. #AllGrit
