  Panthers | Twenty-one players will become unrestricted free agents    Tue Jan 14, 02:11 AM

The Carolina Panthers have 21 players who will become unrestricted free agents when the free-agency period begins in March. Players include WRs Domenik Hixon, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn Jr., QBs Derek Anderson and Jimmy Clausen, TE Ben Hartsock, OL Jordan Gross, OL Geoff Hangartner, OL Travelle Wharton, OL Garry Williams, OL Bruce Campbell, DE Greg Hardy, DT Colin Cole, LBs Jordan Senn, Jason Williams and Dan Connor, S Quintin Mikell, S Michael Mitchell, CBs Captain Munnerlyn and Drayton Florence, and K Graham Gano.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are going to have to invest in their wide receiver corps one way or the other this offseason. The offensive line and secondary are also areas that could have lots of turnover before next season.

  Panthers | Quintin Mikell signs    Mon Sep 2, 10:58 AM

The Carolina Panthers signed free-agent S Quintin Mikell (Rams) to a one-year deal.

Footballguys view: A strong move by the Panthers here. Mikell knows the defensive system in Carolina because he worked under Sean McDermott in Philadelphia. The veteran could push Mike Mitchell for the starting job.

  Rams | Mikell not expected to return    Thu Jul 18, 09:50 PM

The St. Louis Rams are not expected to re-sign free-agent SS Quintin Mikell. If the team did re-sign Mikell, he would be a backup and would have to be willing to play on special teams.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The Panthers have been nosing around Mikell this offseason and that is his likely destination. Mikell was a top 5 Safety last year according to Pro Football Focus and he'd be an upgrade for the Panthers at the position. If the Panthers don't add Mikell we'll see Mike Mitchell, D.J. Campbell, and UDFA Robert Lester compete for the starting strong safety job.

  Panthers | Might have deal with Quintin Mikell    Wed Jul 3, 01:14 PM

The Carolina Panthers could be close to signing free-agent SS Quintin Mikell (Rams).

The St. Louis Rams will release SS Quintin Mikell Monday, March 11.

Footballguys view: Mikell can still play at a high level and should draw plenty of suitors on the open market. At 33 years old the Rams felt he wasn't worth the $6MM the team was set to pay him in 2013. Many still consider Mikell to be a top 5 player at his position.

  Rams | Quintin Mikell agrees to terms    Tue Jul 26, 07:38 PM

SS Quintin Mikell (Eagles) has agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Steve Spagnuolo knows Mikell well from their days together in Philly. He'll be a quality #2 safety for IDP leagues. It is yet to be seen if he'll get to play in the box as much as Craig Dahl did last year. A lot of IDP value hangs in the balance of that decision.

  Eagles | Michael Vick looks for equal treatment    Fri Dec 10, 12:59 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick, head coach Andy Reid and teammates are expressing concerns that other teams aren't being penalized for what they perceive to be illegal hits to the Eagles quarterback, reports Rob Maaddi, of The Associated Press. 'It really tickes me off that Mike (Vick) is getting all those hits,' S Quintin Mikell added. 'When we played the (New York) Giants, it seemed like any time anyone got near QB Eli Manning, they were ready to call it. It shouldn't be like that.'

Footballguys view: The NFL needs to be more consistent when flagging plays for illegal or late hits.
