Anderson wants to remain a Panther

Per Rotoworld.com, a tweet from Joseph Person suggests from talking with James Anderson that he wants to stay in Carolina and is pretty confident a deal will get done.

Free agent OLB James Anderson feels "pretty confident" that the Panthers will re-sign him after the lockout.

It sounds like Anderson is open to re-signing during the initial 72-hour window, which would be a nice plus for the Panthers. The 27-year-old is coming off a breakout season at strong-side linebacker and can also play the weak side.

That's pretty exciting. I know some people on here don't want to overpay for Anderson, but I think it will be a reasonable contract. Hopefully we can re-sign Thomas Davis as well, and the combo of Davis/Beason/Anderson alone can garner another win or two. These guys are amazing when playing together and Rivera will really get the best out of all of them with his different packages.

Thoughts? I'm excited. Anderson showed a LOT of promise last year and I think Davis can come back off of his injury. No NFC South team has ever come 4th in the division back to back. Surely this is a sign of good things?

Anderson is a boss. I think he's closer to TD level than people give him credit for. Very athletic dude.

There are many boners to be had after CJ tweeted that he wanted Rice to come into Carolina, perhaps hinting that he would be here still (and he probably will).

Retaining our guys is something I've always liked about the team. I know everyone wants to make a huge splash every year in free agency grabbing Larry Fitz and Peyton Manning, but this team is a home-grown one.

GOOD SIGNS, GOOD SIGNS.

TD also wants to remain a panther so I expect both of them to be re-signed in the 72 hour period.

Our linebackers, outside of pretending we'd get Luck, were one of the few bright spots last year. Don't take that away from everybody :p

I MISS YOU, [insert Defensive Lineman Who Didn't Want to Play For Us]

That way I can evenly distribute the pain of losing Jenkins and Peppers.
