Panthers re-sign Jordan Senn

The Panthers announced Thursday that they have re-signed linebacker Jordan Senn.

Senn, who is the smallest linebacker in the league at 5’11 and 224 pounds, filled in as a starter seven times for the Panthers last season and acquitted himself pretty well. He had two 14-tackle games in those starts and finished the year with 73 stops overall.

Coach Ron Rivera has hinted that he’ll get a chance at earning a starting role, but Senn might be ticketed for a return to the special teams/backup role he has played most of his time in Carolina. With Thomas Davis making big plans about staying healthy, Jon Beason also returning and James Anderson still on hand, there’s not an obvious spot for Senn in the starting lineup. He played well enough to get a look, though, and keeping him gives the Panthers good depth at the position again this year.

    Although this pretty much bunks the Kuechly pick @ 9, its still a good move. He played extremely well last year. I’m proud as a panthers fan to see they wanna keep the talent they already have.

    Glad we re-signed him. Praying that Thomas Davis doesn’t get injured though.

    Senn was a pleasant surprise last year. He tries to make a play every down. For such a small LB, he’s impressive.

    I don’t know what all y’all are smoking. If this guy starts for us, our season is shot to hell. The only reason he made all those tackles is becuase our D-line never tackled a running back and our DBs never broke up a pass. He’s a halfway decent special-teams player, nothing more. Hopefully we get a real linebacker in the middle rounds so we don’t have to have Senn playing too big a role on defense.
