Panthers, UFAs Stand Off

After pre-free agency bluster by UFAs Captain Munnerlyn (along with
rumors from his agent) and Dwan Edwards, both players are suggesting
other demand - and yet, still waiting on Carolina.

Edwards was last offered a one year deal, $1.5 million (per Edwards
himself apparently), same as he had made in 2012. He has claimed other
offers, including a multi year deal, and while he's said that Carolina
must up their offer, he's still waiting.

Munnerlyn, as well, supposedly had interest from many teams, including
one NFC South team. I don't recall reading about offers, though talks
continued with Carolina; GM Dave Gettleman (I imagine it's time to stop
calling him the "new GM") was supposed to continue talking.

So, this is part of what Gettleman meant about the market flattening
out. The truth is, the big money's more or less gone. And, for better
or worse, these two free agents are aware they have a value to
themselves to stay - whether it's simply not moving in a still-iffy
housing market, or stability. I also don't know that Gettleman's
necessarily going to budge, so it could be a waiting game.
