Jeremy Chinn switched to LB?

He played a lot of linebacker last year more out of our necessity than his preferred position. He is more of a natural safety and would be our version of Earl Thomas or Ed Reed. I think we will use him as a hybrid but put him more at safety if our linebacking corps is improved.

He would fill the Kam Chancellor role better in my eyes

Could this be an agent play? The tag for lb is basically unusable for off the ball players. So this removed the option for the team to use the lower safety tag as leverage.

None of what you said is even remotely accurate.

Chinn was always going to be our "buffalo nickel", like Adams or Simmons, a Will LB/S hybrid. 

That is nothing like ET (single high saftey) or Ed Reed (Luke but as a Safteys) playstyle and only the blindest of homers would think that.

But the team is the one responsible for setting the positions/depth chart, not the agents....

He is a second year player so of course he isn't playing at an all pro level yet. But his athleticism and nose for being around the ball and his hard hitting reminds me of those guys. Hopefully he has the career those guys did.

Yea he gave up like a 120 passer rating when targeted last year. This dudes a stud, but is absolutely nothing like those guys. Jamal Adams? Yes, Ed Reed, no way.

just a reminder, that the official Panthers depth chart...isn't the actual depth chart.    The coaches and team don't put that together.
