Mike Minter to Retire on Tuesday?

Panthers Math: Chris Harris + Mike Minter's retirement = Nate Salley still starting at free safety. This might be what we refer to as a "weakness."

Dammit! I knew the Bears should have held out for more than a fifth for Harris - not that he would neccessarily be worth it, but when a team is desperate make them pay.

And I believe Tim Lewis is their defensive coordinator now?

86-85 final score of Saints/Panthers?:P

Tim Lewis is the DBs coach in Carolina. Mike Trgovac is the DC.

"This might be what we refer to as a “weakness.�" And Minter wouldn't have been one? Mike was a lot of things for the team, still a good player is sadly no longer one of those things.

allegedly, the panthers front office did not know about Minter's potential retirement when they dealt for Chris Harris
