Panthers should sign Bouye

Carolina would be wise to improve its secondary with the kind of talent that A.J. Bouye displayed last season.

The Panthers have begun rebuilding depth on the offensive line with a familiar face. They signed guard Amini Silatolu to a one-year deal. Silatolu was drafted by Carolina in the second round of the 2012 draft. He wasn't re-signed last year after his rookie contract expired and spent time in camp with Chicago before being released.

Will Panthers tag Kawann Short?

Of course, tagging a player doesn't mean going through with the one-year deal. Carolina tagged Josh Norman last March yet rescinded it in April, leading to his departure from Charlotte.

Expect Kawann Short to be tagged

The Panthers still will attempt to sign Short to a long-term deal before the season, but the tag guarantees an important piece of the defense remains intact.

Remmers could use a change of scenery

Mike Remmers did an admirable job moving to left tackle for the final 13 games in place of Michael Oher. But much of Remmers' future in Carolina hinges on Oher's improvement over the next few months.

Panthers right tackle Trai Turner has signed with a new agency, Rosenhaus Sports. Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also recently made the same move. Ginn is UFA. Turner is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal in 2017.

Talked to Danny Morrison, who on Thursday stepped down as president of the Panthers, and he reiterated he had a great run with the organization but wanted to pursue opportunities on the college level.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The resignation of Panthers president Danny Morrison does come as a complete surprise but he has a passion for college sports and it wouldn't surprise if he returned to that.
