Report: Panthers sign FB Mike Tolbert to two-year deal
The Carolina Panthers will re-sign Pro Bowl fullback Mike Tolbert to a two-year, $4 million deal, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
Tolbert has played with the Panthers since with the team as a free agent before the 2012 season. He will remain one of the highest paid fullbacks in the NFL.
2015 was Tolbert’s second appearance at the Pro Bowl, as the 30-year-old earned his first trip to the game in 2013.
Tolbert ran the ball 62 times for 256 yards and a touchdown last season. He was also a threat catching the ball out of the backfield, scoring three touchdowns on 18 receptions.
Tolbert has also played running back during his career, rushing for a career-high 735 yards with the San Diego Chargers in 2010.
