Salley receives tender, too

The Carolina Panthers gave a minimum tender offer of $1.01 million to restricted free agent Nate Salley, meaning any team that chooses to sign him to an offer sheet would have to be willin to give the Panthers a fourth-round pick, the same round in which he was selected in the 2006 draft. That should keep Salley with the Panthers another season.

Thus, the only one of their restricted free agents they didn't tender was defensive tackle Gary Gibson, but he could return if signed later to a contract less thanthe minimum tender.

I'm sorry but Salley is terrible. Does anyone remember him in last yea's preseason?!

Sally is a solid guy and knows the defense, he just needs more PT. If it wasnt for his knee injury a couple of years ago, he could have had a chance to start....

Nate Salley lead the team in tackles and tackles for loss in the pre-season. How does that memory make him terrible?

next in line to a consistent pass rush and making a QB feel uncomfortable in the pocket-continuity in the secondary is big stuff--another good move!
