Wednesday March 9th, 2016

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.
