Panthers Free Agency Profile: Safety Mike Adams

Panthers Free Agency Profile: Safety Mike Adams

As you know by now, the Panthers added quite a few players in an uncharacteristic flurry of signings to kick off free agency. Many were familiar faces, such as re-signing Charles Johnson or bringing back Captain Munnerlyn and Julius Peppers after several seasons away. However, the team did add some new faces, some of which you may not know. So, we will provide a more in depth break down of who they are and where they fit. College and NFL Career Mike Adams is a former University of Delaware stand out who proved that good talent often falls through the cracks. Signed as an undrafted free...

Film study: Why the Giants re-signed John Jerry

Film study: Why the Giants re-signed John Jerry

Last week, the New York Giants re-signed right guard John Jerry to a three-year, $10 million deal. Jerry has been in East Rutherford for three years, but 2016 was the first time he showed signs of being a competent starting offensive guard. Related:John Jerry on re-signing with Giants: This is home Jerry’s PFF grade was a lowly 55.0 in 2015 — his run blocking was a monstrosity and the pass blocking wasn’t much better. But last season, something changed. Jerry’s pass blocking grade shot up to 84.1, tied for 23rd in the league. Jerry handles Julius Peppers nicely on this play...

Is It Time To Worry About the Panthers WR Corps?

Is It Time To Worry About the Panthers WR Corps?

With the departures of Ted Ginn and Corey Brown, the Panthers' receivers unit looks pretty thin. As the first week of free agency draws to a close, the Carolina Panthers have been aggressive in addressing some of the weaker spots on the roster. Captain Munnerlyn will shore up the corners. Julius Peppers will generate more pressure from the edge. Mike Adams will bring some veteran savvy at safety. Matt Kalil will hopefully provide a solution at left tackle (please, please, OH PLEASE!!!! let this be the case). Addressing all of these areas makes sense, and the Panthers look stronger today...

Panthers to Pay Peppers $125,000 per Sack

Details have emerged about the incentives portion of the newly re-minted Panther’s contract. In what will surely be one of the fastest get rich quick schemes in known history, Julius Peppers stands to make $125,000 for about five seconds of work. As reported by Joe Person at the Charlotte Observer, a source with knowledge of the new contract reported the following tiers for Peppers to activate his incentives: Julius Peppers’ one-year deal with the Panthers is worth $3.5 million, with sacks incentives that could push it to $4.25 million, according to a league source.

Panthers fans welcome back Julius Peppers with open arms

Panthers fans welcome back Julius Peppers with open arms

It's a great day to be a Panthers fan. I say this for a number of reasons. But before I get into it let me say if you are NOT happy about the Panthers free agency signings so far then this article is not for you. I get it, haters gonna hate, but please keep it to yourself for a day. When Peppers left in 2009 I was pissed, I admit it. His reasoning seemed shallow at best but I'm not writing this to dredge up and parse the past. I really thought and continued to think he was gone for good. That the bridge was burned and a future Hall of Famer would retire wearing some other jersey. It wasn't...

Captain my Captain! Munnerlyn Returns to Carolina

Captain my Captain! Munnerlyn Returns to Carolina

In a series of uncharacteristic moves, Carolina added familiar names, including former Safety Captain Munnerlyn. If you took the week off from Free Agency because Gettleman never goes shopping during the early frenzy well, you missed a lot. Topping a day that saw the overdue return of legendary DE Julius Peppers, two wide receivers and a safety signing on the dotted line, Carolina saved one last surprise for the late night crowd. With his cover blown due to new Panther Charles Johnson (yes another CJ) admitting he had spoken to the fan favorite upstairs, it was no surprise that Captain...
