    A couple of weeks ago, Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule told reporters that Jeremy Chinn would be making the move to safety this upcoming season. Chinn played a lot of linebacker as a rookie but also played a few other spots including safety.

    Chinn was drafted out of Southern Illinois in the 2nd round last year as a safety, so the move is not expected to be a tough transition. This move was mainly made to protect his body from injury as most linebackers need to play at a weight of around 235 or heavier.

    Wednesday morning, defensive coordinator Phil Snow talked to the media about the position change and what to expect in terms of how exactly they will use him.

    "He's been a safety his whole life so he's had no problem [transitioning]. It's a little bit different for him and it's kind of funny because last year, Al Holcomb had him in a room by himself most of the day. Well now, he's in a whole group that's giving it to him all day, so I think it's been fun for him too."
