Panthers land second-rounder Everette Brown

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.

  1. Everette Brown may compete for a starting job, but has to beat out ex-Raider Tyler Brayton, a starter in 2008, and reserve DE Charles Johnson, a 2007 3rd round pick, who had 6 sacks, 3 times as many sacks as Falcons starting DE Jamaal Anderson, the 8th overall pick in 2007. Anyway, Brown or Johnson will replace Peppers after this 2009 season. Go Falcons!

  2. That’s “No, Falcons. No.” And, it’d be nice to see Irvin and Martin signed today, too.

  3. I really think time will tell this is a great draft class for Carolina, Even without a first round pick. Nobody on Espn or NFL network are picking the Panthers to win the NFC South even though they have 21 of 22 starters returning from a 12-4 team. Everyone says Delhomme is why but he was the starting QB for 2 11-5 seasons and a 12-4. Hes not a great QB I get that but you cant argue with results.

  4. gameday- replace “saintsbucspantherssukk” with “gameday” and you’re right on. Also this:
    gameday

  5. Thanks for editing my boss equation there Florio, now it makes no sense. How ’bout this:
    gameday

  6. One more time:
    gameday = a speck of sand on the beach
    I guess the “greater than” and “less than” symbols don’t work ’round these parts. Falcons, baby!
