Free-Agent cornerback Brandon Boykin is set to visit the defensive back needy Carolina Panthers on Monday per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.
Drafted in 2012, Boykin spent his first three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, before spending the 2015 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Boykin has made a name for himself playing out of the nickle corner spot, a position the Panthers desperately need help at. Boykin had a career high six interceptions for the Eagles in 2013 from the slot corner.
This is one player that makes sense for Carolina from a skill set point of view as well as a need for this defense. At the end of the day, it may come down to money and if the two sides can agree on a contract.
