A quick look at Panthers DE Wes Horton:

Height: 6-5

Weight: 265.

College: Southern Cal.

NFL experience: Fourth year.

The scoop: Horton was suspended four games last season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Horton did not play in the final two regular-season games after the suspension, and was on the practice squad throughout the postseason. Horton has plenty of experience, starting 15 games in 2014 when Greg Hardy was on the commissioner’s exempt list. Horton has been better against the run than as a pass rusher throughout his career. He’s competing with the likes of Ryan Delaire and Rakim Cox for one of the final DE spots.
