Richard Marshall to sign tender

Some good news on the Panthers front, courtesy of Yahoo Sports.

Carolina Panthers starting cornerback Richard Marshall is back on the field after missing minicamp while upset about his contract situation.

Marshall is participating in voluntary workouts this week at Bank of America Stadium. He said Tuesday he hasn’t signed his one-year tender worth $1.759 million, but will before the start of training camp.

Marshall is one of many NFL players with four years of service who would have been unrestricted free agents if the owners hadn’t decide to end the collective bargaining agreement after this season. The move put different rules in place that left Marshall a restricted free agent with few options.

Coach John Fox said Marshall is in great shape despite also skipping the team’s off-season conditioning program.

This is great news – now the team can focus on playing football and not have to worry about any possible distractions that may result in Marshall holding out of camp.
