According to Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer, the Carolina Panthers have re-signed safety/special teams ace Colin Jones. Here’s the Tweet to prove it:

Jones has been with the Panthers since 2012. He’s been a mainstay on special teams, where he’s allegedly very good. He’s also been called upon to fill in at nickel corner and safety at different points during his Panthers career, where he’s mostly been very poor.

This move doesn’t really move the needle for the Panthers on the field, but it’s probably good for the locker room when the team brings back a team captain. And the deal is short and cheap, so it won’t prohibit the Panthers from making other moves in free agency.

It also doesn’t affect comp picks.

I reached out to my colleague and Colin Jones super fan Brian Beverluis for comment. His official statement:

The Ace That Runs The Place is back in his safe space
