2016 NFL free agency: Panthers players who could be targeted by Jaguars

New, comments

Are there any Panthers free agents that the Jaguars could be interested in?

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC Champion Carolina Panthers have 17 free agents hitting the market -- good free agents too -- and would any of them interest the Jacksonville Jaguars? (Well, any not named Josh Norman, that is?)

Here's a list of all the Panthers free agents this year, according to OverTheCap.com.

Player Position Status Salary
Jerricho Cotchery WR UFA $2,500,000
Mike Tolbert RB UFA $2,500,000
Roman Harper S UFA $2,125,000
Charles Tillman CB UFA $1,750,000
Amini Silatolu LG UFA $1,234,276
Chris Scott RG UFA $825,000
Joe Webb QB UFA $825,000
Cortland Finnegan CB UFA $745,000
Fernando Velasco RG UFA $745,000
Tyronne Green OG UFA $745,000
Kyle Love DL UFA $737,500
Frank Alexander DL UFA $642,563
Stephen Hill WR RFA $594,500
Ben Jacobs ILB ERFA $585,000
Josh Norman CB UFA $574,750
Brad Nortman P UFA $544,670
Mike Remmers RT RFA $540,000

As I said above, Josh Norman is the cream of this free agent crop. He's going to get a massive contract, but will the Panthers franchise tag him? There's no better candidate than him on this team. Fellow cornerback Charles Tillman was good last year, but at 35 he's far too old to sign. Fernando Velasco is on the decline, even if he's young. And Brad Nortman isn't any better than Bryan Anger.

Sign Norman.
