The Carolina Panthers placed the transition tag on halfback DeShaun Foster to make sure he didn't hit the free agent market, Minutes before the start of free agency, the Panthers locked up Foster to a three-year deal.

Foster agreed to a three-year, $14.5 million contract Friday night that includes a $4.5 million signing bonus. The $14.5 million could end up being worth another $3 million based on escalators and incentives.


Foster became the third major free agent running back to decide to stay with his team. Shaun Alexander stayed with the Seahawks by signing an eight-year, $62 million contract. Ahman Green stayed with the Packers by signing a one-year deal at $2 million that could grow to $5 million based on incentives.


The Panthers placed a premium on keeping Foster after releasing Stephen Davis last month. Though Foster has fought some injuries, he's been a big back in many ways and has played well in big games. When Foster runs well, the Panthers usually get into the playoffs and do well.


On Friday, Foster received a $700,000 raise on his $5.150 million transition tender thanks to a calculating change in the transition and franchise tenders because of the new collective bargaining agreement. Foster is the first of the five remaining franchise or transition players to sign.


Carolina is the type of team that seems to have a good running system. This leads me to believe that signing an injury prone player isn't the best of idea.
