It appears as if cornerback Captain Munnerlyn is on his way out of Carolina, but maybe not the NFC South.

The Panthers would like to keep Munnerlyn and use him as their nickel cornerback But the feeling inside the building is that the Panthers don’t have the cap room to offer Munnerlyn a contract that could keep him.

Ironically, that means there’s a chance Munnerlyn could be headed to a division rival. Atlanta and Tampa Bay both have salary-cap room to work with and both have needs at cornerback.

Tampa Bay’s cornerback problems have been well documented. Munnerlyn, who has split time as a starter and nickelback, instantly would be better than any cornerback on Tampa Bay’s roster. He’s undersized, but is a great competitor and a solid locker room guy.

I could also see Munnerlyn fitting in Atlanta. The Falcons liked to slide Dunta Robinson onto the slot receiver. But Robinson was released last week. Robert McClain showed he could cover slot receivers, but he might be at his best on the outside.

I was a fan of Munnerlyn's when he was at South Carolina, the only reservations about this move is that I am not so sure how McClain would hold up on the outside for a full season.
