Panthers Agree to Terms With 7th Round CB Robert McClain

The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms on a contract with seventh-round cornerback Robert McClain, Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald/Charlotte Observer reports.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

McClain (5-9, 193) replaced Darius Butler as UCONN’s starting right cornerback in 2009, tying for second in the Big East with four interceptions. Overall, McClain totaled 125 tackles and 10 interceptions, and also returned kicks and punts for the Huskies.

McClain was one of two cornerbacks the Panthers selected in this year's seventh-round, and his special teams ability, primarily his return ability, are his ticket to a spot on the Panthers' 53-man roster.

Panthers sixth-round wide receiver David Gettis and seventh-round cornerback R.J. Stanford agreed to terms earlier on Tuesday.
