Senn returning to Panthers

(10:55 p.m. Wednesday update: Senn said he agreed to a 1-year deal this week. He hasn't signed the contract yet because he's in Portland, Ore., for the offseason.)

The Panthers are bringing back their special teams captain.

Backup linebacker and special teams ace Jordan Senn has agreed in principle to re-sign with the Panthers, a league source confirmed Wednesday night.

Senn, 28, an unrestricted free agent, also tweeted the news Wednesday.

“Panther Nation, I'm back for another year,” Senn posted on his Twitter page. “We're grinding to the top.”

Senn, who came to Charlotte in 2009 after he was waived by Indianapolis, was second on the team last season with 15 special teams tackles. Jason Phillips, another free agent linebacker, was the team leader with 16.

Senn started a career-high seven games in 2011 when linebackers Jon Beason and Thomas Davis went down with season-ending injuries. He signed a one-year deal worth $700,000 last offseason when he was eligible for free agency for the first time.

Terms of his new deal have not been disclosed.

I wish someone KEPT this statistic, but I believe that Jordan Senn is the NFL's active leading onside kick recover-er.

It is a KEPT statistic and over the last three years, he is 18th in the league. Last year he was 9th.
