Captain Munnerlyn: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The deal reportedly includes $7 million guaranteed, and it looks like the Vikings found a nice bargain, after Munnerlyn turned in a surprisingly strong season for the Panthers in 2013. The 25-year-old was the top corner in Carolina, but he may be the No. 2 in Minnesota, with 2013 first-round draft pick Xavier Rhodes coming off a decent rookie season for the Vikings. Munnerlyn had a career-high 74 tackles (48 solo) last season, but he's never been much of an IDP performer and doesn't project as one of the better options at cornerback for 2014.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Munnerlyn parlayed a strong season in Carolina (73 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions, and two touchdowns) into a three-year, $14.25 million contract with the Vikings. He'll provide a big boost to a secondary that was among the worst in the league last season. He'll start at right corner, but will play in the slot against three-receiver sets.
Munnerlyn recorded 61 tackles and two picks in 16 games (including 11 starts) with the Panthers last season. He is expected to serve as the team's top cornerback in 2013.
Will start opposite Chris Gamble at cornerback but isn't expected to have much IDP value given his history of low interceptions and tackles.
Will start opposite Chris Gamble at cornerback and will be used in punt return duties.
Totaled 44 tackles as a rookie backup last year. Not likely to get much playing time unless injuries hit the secondary.
