- Munnerlyn tells Chris Tomasson that he signed a four-year, $21 million contract with the Panthers, which includes a $6 million signing bonus and $10.5 million guaranteed.
Munnerlyn was visiting with the team on Friday and indications were that they were going to sign him, so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
Munnerlyn, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Panthers back in 2009. He spent five years in Carolina before signing a three-year, $11.25 million that included $4.45 million guaranteed with the Vikings back in 2014.
Munnerlyn was one of the best nickelbacks in this year’s free agent market.
In 2016, Munnerlyn appeared in 15 games for the Vikings and recorded 55 tackles, no interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 49 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players.
