Panthers Land Linebacker Josey Jewell

Carolina adds to the second level of the defense.

The Carolina Panthers spent much of their time yesterday supplying quarterback Bryce Young with some protection. Today, the defense gets some help and much-needed help at that.

A few hours ago, the Panthers landed big run stuffer A'Shawn Robinson and now, they have agreed to terms on a deal with former Denver Broncos linebacker Josey Jewell. According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, Jewell gets a three-year, $22.75M deal with a $7M signing bonus and $10M fully guaranteed at signing.

In 2022, his lone year with Ejiro Evero has his defensive coordinator, Jewell set single-season career highs in tackles (128), tackles for loss (7), sacks (2.5), passes defended (4) and interceptions (2).
