Former Panthers and Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas signed with the Raiders on Monday.

Douglas came to Carolina shortly before the 2020 season began. For a while, it looked like the team had picked up an excellent bargain at cornerback at the last minute. During the first half of the year, Douglas generally played tight coverage.

However, his game fell off dramatically in the second half of the season, beginning with a putrid game Week 9 against the Chiefs that saw Douglas frequently out of position. In the end, Douglas wound up allowing six touchdowns and a 108.5 passer rating in coverage for the year.

The Panthers decided to address their need at cornerback much earlier this offseason. A couple weeks ago, they signed the 29-year old veteran A.J. Bouye, who even past his prime represents a significant upgrade. Carolina has also met virtually with several nickel cornerback prospects leading into next week’s draft.
