Former Ravens safety Haruki Nakamura signs with the Carolina Panthers


With former Baltimore Ravens guard Ben Grubbs signing with the New Orleans Saints yesterday, another Raven has joined the NFC South as it’s been reported that safety Haruki Nakamura has signed a three year deal with the Carolina Panthers.

Nakamura has played for the Ravens since 2008 when they drafted him the same year in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.  He has mainly been regulated to special teams and as a back up to safety Ed Reed.

He has recorded 52 tackles and one forced fumble in his career.  Nakamura has been wanting more playing time, but the Ravens weren’t going to do that with Reed still in the picture.

With the addition of Nakamura to the Panthers, he will bring a nice upgrade to not only their secondary unit, but to the special teams as well.

Terms of the three year deal have not been disclosed at this time.
