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

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

Here is the reality of the situation:
Anderson feels that his best chance of getting a good deal (and starting) is here. He is not a big name around the league. Beason playing WLB caused a lot of traffic on the strong side, giving him a lot of opportunities.

I want him on the team, but not necessarily as an everydown player on the strong side. I think Dan Connor will find the field more (Rivera likes him), and if TD is ready to go, Anderson could find himself at SLB on passing downs, WLB in relief of Davis. Who knows, but it is a good problem to have if you do not pay too much. I would think an average of $3-4 million per year on a four year deal is about what he is worth.

I agree with most of this, particularly Connor. Dude showed he could play -put the man on the field.

Triple Digit tackles, 19 QB disruptions and 61 stops. BTW those 61 stops were the most for an 4-3 OLB last season. Took 96 percent of all the defenses snaps, on passing downs was primarily featured as a blitzer (which he does really well) Not very good when dropping back into coverage, so a bit of a weakness there as he's a 2 down guy really unless you blitz him on 3rd downs or he improves his coverage and zone skills.
