Former UConn DB McClain signed by Panthers
The Carolina Panthers, the team which originally drafted McClain back in 2010, announced that they signed McClain to help fill the void left by the season-ending leg injury suffered by Bene Benwikere.
McClain was the No. 249 pick by the Panthers in 2010. He played in all 16 games as a rookie but his best work came in his three seasons in Atlanta where McClain started 15 games and had 186 tackles to go with three interceptions.
The Panthers are 13-0 and Carolina has already clinched the NFC South Division title. Carolina has a two-game lead on Arizona for the best record in the NFC and home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs.
