Panthers Working Out Veteran S Donte Whitner On Friday

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that veteran S Donte Whitner is flying to Carolina on Friday for a workout with the Panthers.

Whitner, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2006. After five years with the Bills, Whitner signed on with the 49ers and later joined the Browns in 2014.

He was in the third year of his four-year, $28 million contract when he was cut loose by the Browns back in April.

In 2015, Whitner appeared in 14 games and recorded 81 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, no interceptions and four pass defenses for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 24 safety out of 89 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Best Available Free Agents list.
