Carolina Panthers second-round defensive end Everette Brown has reached an agreement on a four-year, $4.3 million contract that includes $2.7 million in guaranteed money, according to Adam Caplan of Scout.com.
We’ve confirmed through a league source that Brown received a $1.54 million signing bonus.
The Panthers traded their 2010 first-round draft pick to acquire Brown, a pass-rushing standout at Florida State.
Brown recorded 100 career tackles for the Seminoles along with 46.5 tackles and 23 sacks.
Last season, Brown registered 13.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for losses.
Named first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference last season, Brown is expected to compete for a starting defensive end position opposite Pro Bowler Julius Peppers.
