J.J. Jansen

Panthers have signed long snapper J.J. Jansen to a new five-year, $5.5 million contract according to the team’s official website.

Jansen has been the Panthers’ long snapper since being acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers in 2009 and has played in 112 consecutive regular season games for Carolina.

“He’s consistent, and that’s the first thing you look for,” special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven said in a statement from the team. “He’s earned this. He affects the entire special teams. He’s got some size, he’s very smart and he’s got a lot of leadership ability. I can’t say enough great things about him.”

Jansen made the Pro Bowl in 2013. Jansen was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.
