The Panthers agreed Wednesday to trade Turner to the Chargers in exchange for Russell Okung, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
This is a swap of two big-name offensive linemen, as Turner just finished his fifth straight Pro Bowl season. Turner is expected to step in as a starting guard immediately in Los Angeles. He has two years left on his contract, carrying cap hits of $12.8 million and $15.3 million for 2020 and 2021, respectively. This trade won't become official until the new league year begins March 18.
