Raiders News: Cory Littleton signs with the Panthers
Praise was all over the football landscape when the Las Vegas Raiders signed Cory Littleton ahead of the 2020 season. Pro Football Focus said the Raiders had the best linebacking corps after the signing.
The results on the ground, however, fell short of expectations. Littleton’s struggles as a Raider are well documented, with no interceptions while wearing the silver and black. He decided he couldn’t tackle anymore when he joined the Raiders with a lot of missed tackles that you didn’t see with the Los Angeles Rams.
The new front office didn’t think Littleton added much to their plans. He was fired by the team before free agency began. the Carolina Panthers think they can make the most of its potential. They signed the former Raider on Sunday.

Littleton now has the opportunity to show off his skills. Hopefully he can bounce back and pursue a promising career for an undrafted player.
