Charles Johnson stays with Panthers, gets $32 million guaranteed
Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson was expected to be a sought-after free agent, but he won’t be going anywhere.
A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that the Panthers and Johnson have agreed on a deal that will keep Johnson in Carolina.
The Panthers’ front office and Johnson’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have worked out a six-year, $76 million deal with $32 million guaranteed, including a $30 million signing bonus.
The 25-year-old Johnson started all 16 games for the Panthers last season and recorded 11.5 sacks.
