The Panthers are bringing back DE Charles Johnson, less than a week after he was released by the Panthers.

Reports say he will come back to the Cats on a one-year deal.

He’s second all-time on the Panthers list for sacks (63.5) and forced fumbles (17). Johnson did chat with both the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but decided upon a return to the NFC Champions.

ESPN reports that Johnson was close to a deal with the Giants:

“I came pretty close, but ultimately my heart is in Carolina,” Johnson said. “It’s not about the money. Carolina is home, and I wouldn’t have been happy if I went somewhere else,” Johnson said. “The Giants are a first-class organization, but now I have one more year to get back where I want to be, at home.”

It’s a solid move to add the vet back to the organization, and keeps a fellow NFC team from adding him to their roster.
