The Carolina Panthers locked up one of their most respected and beloved players in Panthers history…
What to do with Minter?
"I can do either," Minter said. "The safeties are pretty interchangeable in our scheme. All it takes is for one (offensive) player to shift and you essentially go from strong safety to free safety anyway. So you have to know both positions."
There's little doubt Davis will end up in the starting lineup when the regular season rolls around, whether it be a strong safety or at outside linebacker.
The team was high on him coming out of college and they love what they've seen of him so far.
Odds are Davis will remain at strong safety in the team's base defense and continued to play the "joker" position at outside linebacker on obvious passing downs.
That is how the team is using him at minicamp now and they've given no indication that they are going to change anytime soon.
It seems to me that if the Panthers were going to play Davis at outside linebacker full time, then they would have already made the move so he can gain as much experience as possible there heading into training camp.
"I don't care where I play," Davis said. "But so far I really like how the coaches are using me."
Minter signed a four-year contract extension with the Panthers that includes $10 million in new money, likely assuring that he will end his career with the Panthers.
