So I guess Gary Gibson isn't coming back.
Actually, it doesn't matter if he does. But the Panthers have given his number 91 away to top pick Everette Brown. They're hoping he pressures the passer like former 91 Kevin Greene. He'll be lower-key, either way.
Here are the other numbers the Panthers draft picks have claimed:
Sherrod Martin - 23 (and Dante Wesley goes back to 21 now that Ken Lucas is gone).
Corvey Irvin - 93 (this wouldn't have bothered me as much if they hadn't given it to Darwin Walker last year).
Mike Goodson - 33
Tony Fiammetta - 42
Duke Robinson - 72 (once worn by 1998's chimney sweeping replacement LS Danny Villa)
Captain Munnerlyn - 41
