Panthers sign Oher

CHARLOTTE, NC (WMC) - Former Briarcrest and Ole Miss star Michael Oher has a new home.  The Carolina Panthers have signed the free agent offensive tackle to a two-year contract.

Oher, the subject of the movie 'The Blind Side,' was released by the Titans in the offseason.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Oher is a veteran of six NFL seasons, starting 11 games for Tennessee last season.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Oher is "a pro who understands what it takes to win."
