Apple agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday.

Apple previously agreed to sign with the Raiders in March, but after having been unable to finalize a deal in Las Vegas, the veteran corner will now link up with the Panthers. The 24-year-old fills a key void on Carolina's roster, as the team didn't previously have much in the way of proven options behind Donte Jackson. As such, Apple looks primed to play a starting role at cornerback for new defensive coordinator Phil Snow. The former Saint will remain in the NFC South.
