Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn tweeted Wednesday night that he will be re-signing with Carolina.
Munnerlyn started 11 games for the Panthers in 2012, notching 61 tackles. He returned both of his interceptions for touchdowns. He took over for the injured Chris Gamble, whom Carolina released earlier in the offseason.
Munnerlyn, who ranks No. 91 on PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100, does not turn 25 until April, placing him on the younger side for an unrestricted free agent.
In addition, the Panthers have reached agreement on a one-year deal with Raiders free agent safety Mike Mitchell, Person reported. Mitchell told the Observer he will compete to start at strong safety. Mitchell racked up 41 tackles in 16 games for Oakland last season.
