Charles Johnson re-signs with Panthers

The Panthers have been gearing up for free agency by re-signing several of their own players.

The latest addition to the list is veteran defensive end Charles Johnson. The team announced the deal and PFT has learned, via a league source, that it is a two-year pact worth $9.5 million.

Johnson’s motivation to get the deal done now was because he wanted to stay in Charlotte. He’s been with the Panthers since 2007 and signed a one-year deal last year before posting 26 tackles, four sacks and three forced fumbles during the regular season.

Defensive ends Mario Addison and Wes Horton have also re-signed with the Panthers since the end of the regular season and defensive tackle Kawann Short got the franchise tag, so the defensive line will have a familiar look to it in 2017.

Carolina also re-signed safety Colin Jones, running back Fozzy Whittaker and wide receiver Brenton Bersin on Tuesday.

    D-Line is good to go. Fozzy is back. Things are looking good. Need a RB to develop and a burner at WR. Some depth in the D-backfield could come from this year’s deep draft……

    agreed, 2nd in the league in sacks last year. Lots of good safety in the draft. Now if they just get the O-line in order. Gotta hope they get a free agent or two at tackle. some decent options out there.

    Number #1 priority….they gotta get some tackles. Sadly I believe “Blind Side” is done. Was hoping they could bump him over to RT and get a LT through FA…now they may have to get at least two.

    Word on the street is that we aren’t re-signing Remmers, so we really need 2 tackles. If we sign Ryan’s little brother, it had better be to move him to RT. I’ll be happy if we take Okung off Denver’s hands.

    I think we overpaid for CJ. He’s definitely declining. Hopefully Addison and Ealy are good enough to make CJ a role player.
