Panthers Notes: Captain Munnerlyn, Ted Ginn, Mike Mitchell, Brandon LaFell, Graham Gano


Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer has a number of notes regarding some of the Carolina Panthers soon-to-be free agents included in his recent column.

Captain Munnerlyn

According to Person, the Panthers are prepared to allow CB Captain Munnerlyn test the free agent market in the coming weeks.

Person adds that re-signing him to a “shorter, team-friendly” contract remains a possibility, but Munnerlyn has said previously that he expects to find a better market than he did last year.

Munnerlyn is coming off of a great season in which he produced 73 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 interceptions — both of which were returned for touchdowns — a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He was rated as the No. 11 cornerback in the league, according to Pro Football Focus.

We have him listed as the No. 34 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

Ted Ginn

Person writes that the Panthers “will look to lock up” free agent WR Ted Ginn Jr to a contract extension.

Ginn, 28, signed a one-year contract with Carolina last year and managed to produce a breakout season in 2013. He totaled 36 receptions for 556 yard receiving to go along with five touchdowns.

He was also an effective kick returner for the Panthers as well.

We have him listed as the No. 97 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.

Mike Mitchell

Person also expects the Panthers to re-sign free safety Mike Mitchell as well.

Person points to the fact that Mitchell brought a “physical presence” to the Panthers’ secondary last season while producing some decent numbers.

Mitchell, 26, totaled 67 tackles, four sacks, four interceptions and two forced fumbles during his first year in Carolina.

We have him listed as the No. 96 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.

How do you have these guys so low? I’m obviously a Skins fan and could care less…better unless something makes you fell more informed tgat PFF, I’m lost. Captain is easily Top 15 free agent…

You can make the case that both Munnelyn and Mitchell should be higher based on their production last season, but I actually started to get the impression that I was too high on these guys as many have him in the 50-65 range. Our rankings are based on multiple opinions, so I’ll see if I can lobby in favor of propping these guys up a bit.

hahah NO NO how are Allen and Snyder’s less than genius brains going to snag them at a reasonable rate if you do that!!!!???? Keep them ranked low, this is one time when saying my solid logic is flawed despite any rationale…
