One of Rivera's old San Diego players. It could be possible to see him in a Panthers' uniform if Mikell doesn't come back.

who?

incredibly smart SS who is great at diagnosing plays based on formations and tendencies and disrupting plans and hits really hard.

I'd take him just based on this, tbh, but i was hoping we'd sign him prior to last year.

What's up with Panthers fans wanting to settle for mediocrity?

One he's all we can probably afford at this moment in time, two he's an upgrade over mikkel so why not?

This pesky thing called the salary cap means that you can't have an All-Pro at every position.

 

Though that same pesky salary cap means that a small market team can actually compete with the big market teams on a level playing field year in and year out.  That's why I love it.

I think the Panthers will probably just roll with Robert Lester at SS and hopefully re-sign Mitchell at FS.  For many reasons they should and will probably cut Godfrey so I'd anticipate them signing a FA like Gregory or maybe even bringing Mikell back if he's cheap.  Honestly though Mikell didn't play all that great, especially at the end of the year.  Two plays stick out in my mind - Jimmy Graham jumping over him for a TD in Week 16 (yes I know there's a huge size difference) and him completely whiffing on Kapernick's TD scramble in the playoffs.

Why force yourself to make a dumb move when you can just make Godfrey take a paycut? Still has Lester for depth.

I am not sold on Lester yet.  About "settling for mediocrity"--you really have to find role players. However, if you are not going to bring in good CBs, you need some good, smart Safeties.  Maybe this guy is that.  We need another SS anyway.  If Lester beats him out, great.

Re-signing Mitchell---I am hopeful, but skeptical.  I think this is a pretty sound assessment of the situation.
