Panthers re-sign DE Charles Johnson

- The Carolina Panthers have re-signed defensive end Charles Johnson to a one-year contract. 

Johnson returns to the Panthers after being released March 3.

“We worked very closely with Charles and his agent in the last few days to come to an agreement and I’m appreciative of all the hard work put forth to get a deal done,” general manager Dave Gettleman. “What this deal signifies is Charles is a man of his word and in his heart he bleeds Carolina blue. The entire Panthers family is very happy that Charles will be able to continue his career here.”

Johnson started nine games for Carolina in 2015, missing seven games while on the injured reserve / designated to return list with a hamstring injury. He returned from the injury and started all three postseason games for the Panthers, recording three sacks. 

“My heart was in Carolina,” Johnson said. "Once you put all that energy into it, I feel like I would have been wasting all that work had I gone somewhere else for some dollars. I’d rather be happy doing what I’m doing around people that I know, and I’m comfortable with. I can’t wait to get back to work.”
