Former Eagles News: Quintin Mikell signs with the Panthers

Dilip Vishwanat

It took all summer, but former Eagles' safety Quintin Mikell has finally found a new home, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. The Boise State alum has joined the Carolina Panthers. Mikell will be reunited with former Eagles' defensive coordinator and secondary coach Sean McDermott, in a move that had been speculated on for months.

Mikell had spent the past two years in St. Louis, after the Eagles neglected to resign the veteran after eight years of service. He appeared in all 32 games over the last two seasons with the Rams, collecting an impressive 192 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and nine forced fumbles. The Rams released Mikell shortly before the start of free agency.

The 10-year veteran is one of the true success stories of the NFL as of late. Mikell started off as a special teams player, after going undrafted. Over the years, he formed a bond with legendary Eagles' safety Brian Dawkins and eventually started opposite him in the team's last NFC Championship appearance. When Dawkins left for Denver, Mikell took his place as the leader of the defense and went to the Pro Bowl in 2009.
