Panthers ink free agents S Searcy, CB Cockrell and OG Sirles

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers have signed three potential starters in the second wave of free agency.

Carolina signed safety Da'Norris Searcy and cornerback Ross Cockrell to two-year contracts on Friday and guard Jeremiah Sirles to a one-year deal. The financial terms were not released, although Cockrell's agency Reign Sports Management announced on Twitter his deal was worth $6.8 million.

Searcy and Cockrell both have North Carolina ties and were teammates before with the Buffalo Bills in 2014. It didn't take them long to resume their trash talking with Searcy having played at North Carolina and Cockrell from rival Duke.
