    The Carolina Panthers signed Rashaan Melvin to their active roster Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Melvin was elevated -- for the second time -- to the active roster ahead of Thursday's contest against the Texans, and he did enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. The 31-year-old will operate as a depth option while Jaycee Horn (foot) remains sidelined. The Panthers also executed a trade to acquire CJ Henderson, so Melvin's role may decrease slightly when the newcomer gets fully acclimated to Carolina's defensive schemes.
