Panthers' Davis says Tillman can put defense over the top

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Thomas Davis said the addition of veteran cornerback Charles Tillman will take the Carolina Panthers' defense to the next level.

The Panthers have won the NFC South the past two seasons, but only have one postseason victory to show for it.

Davis, an outside linebacker and the longest-tenured player on Carolina's roster, said Tillman can help change that given the experience and play-making ability he brings to the secondary.
