It's been a busy day in Charlotte for the Carolina Panthers on the second day of free agency. To end it, they agreed to terms with a familiar face in nickel back specialist Captain Munnerlyn, a big need for the defense.
Munnerlyn left Carolina after the 2013 season for Minnesota to get paid and understandably. He was another player and friend defensive end Charles Johnson was lobbying for to come home. The former South Carolina Gamecock did just that.
Speaking of Charles Johnson, the Panthers signed a second one, only this plays wide receiver. Another teammate of Munnerlyn and Matt Kalil, Panthers picked him up to help in the slot position after the losses of Philly Brown and Ted Ginn. This is a position the team will likely still want to hit hard in the draft.
The Panthers also brought in 36 year-old strong safety Mike Adam from the Colts. He made the Pro Bowl in 2014 and '15 and is expected to allow Kurt Coleman to move back to free safety. Another spot the Panthers needed to address. They will surely get a safety in what is a strong and deep class in the draft to groom with Adams.
When it's all said and done, the Panthers have hit every area they wanted to in free agency before the draft, which is big for next season. Particularly on defense, the Panthers are now set to do add good hound depth to go along with good veterans in the likes of Charles Johnson, Julius Peppers, Mike Adams, Kurt Coleman, and even Mario Addison. When it comes to the offense, they will still need to address speed, but Carolina is overall in a good spot thanks to Gettleman spending money like he stole it.
