Panthers Sign Third-Round Pick

The Panthers signed third-round draft choice Corvey Irvin to a four-year contract on Monday.

Irvin's four-year deal is worth $2.42 million and includes a $670,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $310,000 (2009), $395,000 (2010), $480,000 (2011), and $565,000 (2012).

A 6-3, 305-pound defensive tackle out of Georgia, Irvin made 34 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, and 3 sacks for the Bulldogs last season.

Irvin's signing leaves second-round pick Sherrod Martin as Carolina's only 2009 draft choice yet to sign with the team.
