Panthers RFAs Marshall, Davis sign tenders

Darin Gantt of the Charlotte Observer and Rock Hill Herald reports that Panthers restricted free agents Thomas Davis and Richard Marshall signed their one-year tenders on Tuesday.

Davis, a linebacker, will collect $3.268 million after receiving the highest possible tender (first and third round).  The former first-round pick is coming off a torn ACL, but was recently timed at 4.47 in the forty-yard dash, indicating that his recovery has gone smoothly.  The Panthers run a Tampa 2-style defense under second-year coordinator Ron Meeks, and Davis’ role on the weak side is crucial in the scheme.
Marshall, a cornerback, is now slated for a $1.759 million base salary.  Though Marshall was initially upset with the restricted free agent tender, he reported to offseason workouts in late May and has been a regular participant ever since.

    just wanted to add that davis had a great shot at the pro bowl before the injury and also that davis tweaked that knee today in practice. hopefully the panthers will stop rushing him back from that ACL now and let him sit till the pre season.
