carolina can't afford...munnerlyn?

Recommended Posts

rotoworld...

There is a "feeling inside the building" that the Panthers can't afford to re-sign free agent CB Captain Munnerlyn.

This is even with Chris Gamble's release considered a foregone conclusion. Carolina is in awful position against the salary cap and will have little to no flexibility. Munnerlyn, 25 in April, should land on his feet as a slot corner.

pat yasinskas...

It appears as if cornerback Captain Munnerlyn is on his way out of Carolina, but maybe not the NFC South.

The Panthers would like to keep Munnerlyn and use him as their nickel cornerback But the feeling inside the building is that the Panthers don’t have the cap room to offer Munnerlyn a contract that could keep him.

Ironically, that means there’s a chance Munnerlyn could be headed to a division rival. Atlanta and Tampa Bay both have salary-cap room to work with and both have needs at cornerback.

Tampa Bay’s cornerback problems have been well documented. Munnerlyn, who has split time as a starter and nickelback, instantly would be better than any cornerback on Tampa Bay’s roster. He’s undersized, but is a great competitor and a solid locker room guy.

I really don't know HOW to feel about this...

Maybe we don't have the money to sign a nickle because we have grander plans for it. That is what I'll go with...

If we can't afford Captain fuging Munnerlyn, then Rivera ought to go ahead and pack his bags because this team is doomed for failure.

Cap must want way more than hes worth or Yasinskas has no idea what's he's talking about.

You decide which is more likely.

This. Captain is worth solid nickel CB money because that's what he is. If he can get starter money elsewhere, then best of luck to him.

Seems like baseless speculation to me.

There is a "feeling inside the building" whatever that means, but no mention of a source.

Oh it's Yasinkas, that explains everything.

I keep hearing about

"When Chris Gamble is released"

"Chris Gamble is a lock to be released"

"Gamble is going to be cut"

"Gamble's cap figure would help the Panthers cap situation if released"

We have what, 5 days till we need to be under the cap??

My gut says Gamble is starting for the Panthers on opening day.

"Feeling inside the buildinh" Translated into Panthers language " I am guessing". We are as tight as it comes regadring things "inside" the building

That is what i believe. Captain thinks he is a starter and will want to be paid like one, hopefully not by us
