It's officially I'm staying a Carolina Panthers!!!!!!! Lets get it— Captain Munnerlyn (@captain_41) March 21, 2013
Details of Munnerlyn's contract are still unknown, but Chicago reportedly offered the 24-year-old cornerback a one-year contract. Playing mostly in a nickel role, Munnerlyn started 11 games last season, finishing with nine pass deflections and two interceptions. He's also had some success as a punt returner, averaging 9.0 yards per return during his career.
Munnerlyn may return to a bigger role in Carolina as the Panthers released starting cornerback Chris Gamble earlier this offseason. Munnerlyn spent the first four years of his career with Carolina after being selected in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Panthers.
