DeCoud, 28, was cut loose by the Falcons a few months ago, but his market has been slow developing, despite being a Pro Bowler two years ago.
The Panthers need some depth in their secondary and DeCoud could prove to be a good value signing for them.
Last year, he totaled 65 tackles and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown. Pro Football Focus has DeCoud rated as the No. 83 safety in the league out of 86 players qualifying players last season.
We had him listed as the No. 11 best available player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
