Munnerlyn signed a four-year contract with the Panthers on Saturday. Munnerlyn played the first five seasons of his career in Carolina, but spent the last three with the Vikings in Minnesota. While 2017 didn't produce his best campaign, he did notch 55 tackles (38 solo), three pass defenses and a forced fumble. He's topped two interceptions just once in his career, but has a tendency to return them for touchdowns. Of his 11 career interceptions, six of them have gone for six points. The 28-year-old cornerback will likely slot in behind James Bradberry and Daryl Worley on the Panthers' depth chart.
Munnerlyn had three tackles in Sunday's win over Chicago. He finished the season with 55 tackles and a forced fumble in 15 games. Munnerlyn should find a robust market for his services this winter as a free agent as he's seen as a top slot corners in the league.
Munnerlyn (ankle) is active for Thursday's game in Detroit. With Terrence Newman (neck) out of commission, Munnerlyn could experience an uptick in snaps, despite Trae Waynes entering the starting lineup. As a result, the potential exists for Munnerlyn to muster more than his typical tackle count (4.0 per game).
Munnerlyn (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals. Munnerlyn was forced to miss last week's loss to the Redskins due to a sprained ankle, but returned to full participation in practice on Friday, as he entered the weekend with optimism regarding his potential availability. If his reps are at all limited, Trae Waynes could see additional action as the No. 3 cornerback.
Munnerlyn (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Arizona, but was able to fully practice Friday. He's optimistic he can play. "It was very frustrating," Munnerlyn told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I had to miss a game. Hopefully I'm back this week, flying around, moving around and making plays." Munnerlyn missed his first game last week since 2011 due to a sprained ankle. It sounds like he'll return this week, but his playing time could be limited.
