Carolina Panthers Re-Sign Linebacker Jordan Senn

The Panthers have reportedly re-signed Jordan Senn to a new contract.

Senn, who is an outstanding Special Teams player and breakout linebacker, was an unrestricted free agent.

He caught the eye of many of Panther Nation last season with a spectacular interception against the Texans late in the season. With the array of injuries to the defense, Senn was able to step up and perform at a starter’s level.

Coach Rivera has said that Senn will be able to compete for a starting position, but it doesn’t look like they were willing to pay him starter money, says ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas.

According to Yasinskas, Senn will be making $700,000 this season, while Panthers take advantage of the veteran minimum contracts. He will count a total of 540,000 against the cap with a $65,000 signing bonus also going against the cap. So his overall cap figure will be set at $605,000.

Senn is a great player, and a great person to have on the team. He’s one of the smallest linebackers in the league, and his will and determination have turned him into a viable addition to the team.
