The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms on a four-year deal with ex-San Diego Chargers running back Mike Tolbert, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora on Monday.
"Mike is a very versatile player," Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said. "He can jump in and play fullback, he catches the ball well out of the backfield and plays running back. He's also an outstanding special teams player."

Tolbert's agent Joel Turner said his client signed a four-year contract, but would not disclose financial terms. However, he said Tolbert left more than $1 million on the table from San Diego.
"Mike's signing does not mean we're trying to trade DeAngelo or Jonathan," Hurney said. "We're making no attempts to trade either one of them. We've made no calls and will make no calls."
