Free Agent CB Market Presents a Challenge to Panthers

One change to the Panthers defensive secondary that up till now was a foregone conclusion was the exit of CB Richard Marshall. Marshall played his first 3 seasons as the nickel CB but after Ken Lucas was released he assumed the spot opposite Chris Gamble. Marshall was pretty effective at the nickel but not so much on the outside. So much so at times he moved backed to the middle while 2nd year Captain Munnerlyn moved outside.

No problem if Marshall leaves right? Plenty of options out there... Let's take a look as of this morning this is who seem to be viable options...after the jump...

 

These are the names I recognize as true CBs but I might have included a safety on accident. This is not all CB's just the ones I've heard of:

Brent Grimes - Atl

Brandon Carr - KC

Husain Abdullah - Minn

Brian Williams - Atl

Chris Carr - Balt

Ashton Youboty - Buf

Jonathan Joseph - Cinn

Tye Hill - Det

Chris Houston - Det

Melvin Bullitt = Indy

Lito Sheppard - Minn

Antonio Cromartie - NYJ

Quinton Mikell - Phi

So there are a few neames that seem like they would be good starters like Mickell, Sheppard and of course Aso & Cromartie. But I've feeling any degree of confidence the Panthers will even offer those two.
