"I’ve played 21 straight seasons in my life and this will be the first season I miss. I appreciate everyone who has supported me to this point in my life and career, thank you … and this too shall pass!”

Cason started 11 games for he Panthers last season before being released. He had 58 tackles, four forced fumbles and two interceptions.

However, Cason was benched prior to being released by Carolina when he allowed six touchdown passes. Opposing quarterbacks completed 56 of 70 passes thrown in his direction for 659 yards and a 122.2 passer rating, according to Pro Football Focus.
