Panthers Sign Former Packer Colin Cole

On Thursday the Carolina Panthers signed former Packers defensive lineman Colin Cole as a street free agent.

Cole has not played in the NFL since 2010 with the Seattle Seahawks.

General manager Ted Thompson appeared to make the correct choice by allowing Cole to walk away in free agency in 2009 when he signed with the Seahawks on a five-year deal worth over $20 million.

Cole played only two seasons in Seattle, and as a result of Cole leaving, the Packers received a compensatory fifth-round draft choice in 2010 that they used to select tackle Marshall Newhouse, the starter at left tackle for much of the past two seasons.

Details of Cole's contract were not disclosed.
