While they wait on the decision of free agent receiver Jerricho Cotchery, the Panthers are moving to address another gaping hole on their roster at cornerback.
Arizona Cardinals free agent corner Antoine Cason is visiting with the Panthers on Wednesday, according to a league source. Cason's visit comes a day after Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas was in Charlotte meeting with the Panthers.
Cason was in San Diego when Panthers coach Ron Rivera and secondary coach Steve Wilks were on the Chargers' staff.
Cason, 27, a six-year veteran who has 14 career interceptions, did not start a game for Arizona last season after signing a one-year deal with the Cardinals last offseason. Pro Bowl corner Patrick Peterson and Jerraud Powers were the Cards' starting corners.
Cason played only 10 defensive snaps in a Week 5 win against the Panthers, but had a fumble recovery. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton chased down Cason to prevent a touchdown on Cason's fumble return.
Cason, who played collegiately at Arizona, was a first-round pick of the Chargers in 2008. He started 14 games or more during his last three seasons in San Diego from 2010-2012.
