The Carolina Panthers added another piece to their secondary with the signing of unrestricted free agent cornerback D.J. Moore to a one-year deal.

Moore (5-9 and 180 pounds), who spent his first four seasons with Chicago, played in 13 games with two starts in 2012. He recorded 29 tackles, two interceptions and six passes defensed. Moore, who played college ball at Vanderbilt, was drafted in the fourth round (119th overall) in 2009. The Spartanburg, S.C., native has played in 43 career regular season games with three starts and has tallied 133 tackles, 10 interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns and 17 passes defensed.

Moore is the second free agent cornerback to be signed by Carolina in the last week, joining 10-year veteran Drayton Florence (Tuskegee), who played for Panthers head coach Ron Rivera in San Diego. Carolina cut its best coverage cornerback, Chris Gamble, earlier this month to reduce its salary-cap figure. Gamble announced his retirement shortly thereafter. The Panthers also return part-time starter Josh Norman from last year’s team.
