I dont know how i feel about Captain leaving, but staying in division. That will hurt the fan part of me a lot.

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.

DING DING DING!

Cap: "But coach, you said I was the best slot cornerback you'd ever seen!"

Ron: "Yea... So I'll pay you like a top tier nickelback."

Edit:

Does anyone know what the situation with Dockery is?

I feel I have to say this again... This is Pat Y saying this

If we release Gamble and restructure/re-work some deals (such as Gross, Beason, and possibly DWill) we'd have enough money to sign Munnerlyn

The league is full of Captain Munnerlyn. Don't overpay for the one you have. Draft and free agency has to be where this team has success. The big money pieces are mostly in place.

Not having our nickle corner will be tragic to this secondary. He was really valuable and will leave a bigger hole to fill than Gamble's.

Actually a hole in the secondary prob would give up less TDs than Captain to be honest.

If they keep Gamble, this is a non-issue. The other corners on the roster show some promise. They could bring in a couple late round/practice squad guy and be set at corner. If the let go of Gamble AND Munnerlyn...they instantly have a need at corner.

I have a feeling Gettleman will be working the phones trying to trade down because this team has a lot of needs and not a lot of draft picks. Move down into the late 20's int the first round and gain a 3rd? Maybe a 2nd? Would be worth it because that extra player on a team with no money to sign any FA's.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
