Bersin, Jones and Whittaker re-sign with Panthers

Posted March 7

— The Carolina Panthers re-signed three reserve players Tuesday afternoon: wide receiver Brenton Bersin, safety Colin Jones and running back Fozzy Whittaker.

Carolina re-upped with Bersin for one year, according to the team's official website. Bersin would have become an unrestricted free agent if the Panthers did not come to terms by the league's March 9 deadline at 4 p.m.

Bersin joined Carolina as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Wofford College in 2013.

The former Terrier has appeared in 34 games for Carolina and has recorded 24 catches for 287 yards and one touchdown.

Jones agreed to two-year deal worth $2.4 million, according to a league source.

The special teams stalwart was acquired from San Francisco prior to the start of the 2012 season in exchange for a seventh-round draft choice.

Jones was selected with the No. 190 overall pick in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the 49ers.

The former Texas Christian Horned Frog appeared in 14 games with one start last season for Carolina.

In six seasons, Jones has played in 89 games, tallying 102 tackles, four passes defensed, one interception and one sack.

The Panthers also agreed to a two-year deal worth $2.5 million with Whittaker, according to a league source.

Whittaker garnered 57 carries for 265 rushing yards and 25 receptions for 226 receiving yards last season, all career-highs for the five-year veteran.

Whittaker signed with Carolina in July of 2014 after spending time with the Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers and Cleveland Browns.

Arizona signed the former Texas Longhorn as an undrafted rookie free agent to the Cardinals' practice squad in 2012.

​Whittaker has tallied 114 carries for 518 rushing yards and two touchdowns in three seasons with the Panthers. He has also recorded 42 receptions for 350 yards and one score.

On special teams, Whittaker has garnered 746 kick return yards and averaged 23.3 yards on 32 attempts.
