CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In a continued effort to get younger and faster defensively, the Carolina Panthers are moving on from nickelback Captain Munnerlyn and safety Mike Adams, the team announced Monday.

The release of Munnerlyn, 30, will clear $2 million in cap space and give the Panthers just over $17 million in total cap space.

Adams, 37, posted Monday on Instagram that he’d been informed the organization would not re-sign him in 2019.

Earlier this offseason, outside linebacker Thomas Davis, 35, was told he wouldn’t be re-signed and defensive end Julius Peppers, 39, announced his retirement.

All four players in their 30s started this past season — Munnerlyn in the nickel package — as Carolina struggled defensively to the point where head coach Ron Rivera took over the defensive playcalling late in a 7-9 season.

Rivera will continue to call the defensive plays in 2019.
