  • Panthers' Damien Wilson: Signs with Panthers

    Wilson agreed to a two-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Wilson set a career high with 106 tackles (59 solo), three sacks, one interception and one forced fumble in 17 games for Jacksonville in 2021, and he was able to secure a multi-year deal in free agency. The 28-year-old should be a solid IDP option for Carolina in 2022 coming off last year's production.

The 28-year-old joined Jacksonville on a one-year, $2 million deal in April 2021, and he'll return to free agency this offseason after posting career highs across the board with 106 tackles (59 solo), three sacks, five passes defensed, one interception and one forced fumble.

  • Chiefs' Damien Wilson: Solid showing in 2020

    Wilson posted 73 tackles (46 solo) and forced one fumble over his 13 games played during the 2020 regular-season campaign.

    Wilson didn't quite match the 81 tackles he amassed last season and didn't finish with at least half a sack for the first time since his rookie campaign back in 2015, when he rarely saw the field. Still, he did post the best per-game tackle average of his career and forced a fumble for a third straight season. Wilson's two-year pact with the Chiefs expires this offseason, so it remains to be seen what uniform he will don next season.
