The Carolina Panthers interviewed Giants defensive assistant coach Al Holcomb on Thursday for their linebackers coach opening, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Holcomb just completed his fourth season with the Giants. The Panthers recently hired Dave Gettleman from the Giants as their new general manager. Gettleman was the Giants’ senior pro personnel analyst.

Reserve/future moves: The Giants added three more reserve/future contract players: tight end Jamie Childers, cornerback Buddy Jackson and kicker/punter Jake Rogers.

The 6-foot-4 Childers, who played tight end and quarterback at Coastal Carolina, played in a preseason game for the Rams in 2012 before being waived.

The 6-foot-3 Jackson was signed as a rookie free agent by the Colts last May before being waived in training camp. A product of the University of Pittsburgh, he spent the rest of last season on the Redskins' practice squad.

The 6-foot-2 Rogers originally signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2011, but was waived shortly thereafter, and then was signed by the Buccaneers. He went 3-for-3 on field goal attempts and punted six times for a 41.7-yard gross average in the 2011 preseason. He is the career scoring leader at the University of Cincinnati, connection on 51 of 75 field goal attempts. During his senior year, he averaged 41.6 yards on punts as well.

Those three players join wide receiver Kris Adams, cornerback Antonio Dennard, guard Bryant Browning, guard Chris DeGeare, defensive back David Caldwell, quarterback Curtis Painter, linebacker Jake Muasau, wide receiver Brandon Collins, cornerback Trumaine McBride, wide receiver Kevin Hardy, guard Michael Jasper, defensive tackle Bobby Skinner, tackle Matt McCants, tackle Levy Adcock, guard Stephen Goodwin, tight end Larry Donnell, defensive end Matt Broha, and cornerback Laron Scott as players the Giants signed to reserve/future contracts.
