Johnson Happy the Franchise Tag Wasn’t Placed on Him

Defensive end Charles Johnson said he was glad the Panthers didn’t use the franchise tag on him. But he quickly added that he wants to return to the Panthers next season with a long-term deal. “Yeah, definitely,” said Johnson, who enjoyed a breakout season with 11.5 sacks. “I hope I do. I’ve been here forever it seems and I don’t want to relocate. I think we’ve had some success and will have more in the future.” Johnson said he spoke with coach Ron Rivera recently and likes what he’s heard from him. “He seems like a good guy and I think sometimes change is good,” Johnson said.
