Panthers re-signed OLB Antwan Applewhite.

The Charlotte Observer lists Antwan Applewhite and Jordan Senn as high priority free agents for the Panthers.
Applewhite has a history with coach Ron Rivera in San Diego and can play both linebacker and defensive end. Senn finished fourth on the team with 73 tackles but is severly undersized and not likely to covet much attention on the open market.

Panthers signed OLB/DE Antwan Applewhite.
The Panthers are desperate for linebacker help after losing both Jon Beason and Thomas Davis for the season. Applewhite flashed pass rush ability with the Chargers and can help on special teams. Head coach Ron Rivera was with San Diego as the linebackers coach/defensive coordinator from 2007-10.

49ers signed OLB Antwan Applewhite, formerly of the Chargers.
Applewhite played way more snaps than the Chargers hoped last season, though he did flash some pass-rush ability with three sacks and two forced fumbles. A May 6 DUI arrest was Applewhite's undoing in San Diego. With the 49ers, Applewhite knows DC Greg Manusky's system and can also contribute on special teams.
