The Carolina Panthers have signed tight end/fullback Richie Brockel to a two-year contract and offensive lineman Garry Williams to a one-year contract before free agency, the team announced Monday. Brockel would have been a restricted free agent and Williams would have been an unrestricted free agent.

Brockel, 6-1 and 255 pounds, played in 16 games for Carolina in 2013, seeing action at fullback, tight end and on special teams.  He caught one pass for 12 yards and rushed once for one yard. Brockel joined the Panthers in 2011 and has played in 43 games with two starts in the past three seasons.

Williams, 6-3 and 315, started the 2013 season opener at right guard for Carolina but spent the rest of the season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in the game. A veteran of five NFL seasons, all with the Panthers, Williams has seen action at guard and tackle for Carolina. He has started 21 of 40 career games played.
