Of the many struggles last season for the Panthers, it wasn’t their special teams. In fact the special teams was one of their key strengths in 2012.

Jordan Senn has fifteen tackles in sixteen games on the special teams squad. On defense as a reserve linebacker he had nine tackles.

Senn is an important player for their special teams and it was urgent that the new general manager make moves before the fans began to show doubt. No official report on the new deal and its terms, but it is more than likely a one year deal.

Senn began his career with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2008. After one season there, he signed with the Panthers and has spent each of the past seasons in Carolina.

As a team, the Panthers allowed fewer yards per kickoff than any other team in the league. They ranked tenth in opponent punt return yards average.
