Panthers 2014 Free Agency Tracker

So far its a slow roll for the Panthers as they have done nothing but lose players after franchising DE Greg Hardy. They did re-sign their kicker Graham Gano and a couple back-up players as well.

CSR will use this post as a storystream to track the Panthers free agency moves and rumors over the next week or so. I imagine most Panther fans are still coming to grips with the loss of Steve Smith. I'm further disheartened he wants to play a couple more seasons simply to get the chance to stick it tot he Panthers, or so the rumor goes. We shall see if he lands in the NFC South in order to do just that.
