Panthers sign DT Derrick Brown to 4-year, $96M contract extension

The Carolina Panthers are making sure Derrick Brown is a foundation of their defense for years to come.

On Friday, the team agreed to a four-year contract extension with the defensive tackle. The new contract is worth $96 million, with $63.2 million guaranteed, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

  • Brown, who turns 26 in April, was the Panthers’ 2020 first-round selection out of Auburn. He’s been a reliable center of Carolina’s defense, playing 66 of 67 games (and starting 63) during his four-year NFL career.

    Last season was Brown’s best, compiling 103 total tackles — a single-season record for a defensive lineman — with seven tackles for loss and 15 quarterback hits. That performance resulted in Brown being named to his first Pro Bowl.

    It’s possible the Houston Texans signed up for one year of Stefon Diggs. They’re hoping it’s a great year.

    The Texans traded for Diggs from the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, but we found out on Thursday that there was a curious layer to the deal.

    The Texans agreed to eliminate the final three years of Diggs’ deal, which would allow him to become a free agent after this season according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

    The Texans gave a 2025 second-round pick to Buffalo for Diggs, and there’s a possibility it’s just for a one-year rental.

    • Since the Bills traded Stefon Diggs prior to June 1, they will take on a $31 million dead salary-cap charge next season. He is signed through the 2027 season.

      A separation between Diggs and the Bills seemed inevitable.

      After offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey was replaced by Joe Brady in November, Diggs’ production dropped. His targets and average receiving yards per game decreased and he recorded only one touchdown the rest of the regular season. That after posting five games of at least 100-plus receiving yards prior to the coaching change.
