Panthers add Brandon Boykin on one-year deal

The Carolina Panthers signed cornerback Brandon Boykin, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers, to a one-year contract.

What It Means:

Acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles for a fifth-round pick last offseason, Boykin played surprisingly few snaps for the Steelers early in the season. He managed to work his way into a role midway through the year, proving once again to be a good slot corner. He should play between Josh Norman and Bene Benwikere in sub packages for Carolina.

This is an example of the rich getting richer as the Panthers ranked second in Adjusted Defensive Net Expected Points per play in 2015.
