The Buffalo Bills sent defensive lineman Darryl Johnson to the Carolina Panthers on the eve of the cut-off day.
Knowledge is a good thing in the NFL. Just ask the Carolina Panthers.
On Monday, general manager David Fitterer signed a deal with the Buffalo Bills and landed defensive lineman Darryl Johnson for a sixth round of the 2022 draft. Johnson, who would be cut off the bill despite a strong performance in training camp and pre-season, is now catching up where he has to earn snaps on a young defense.
For the bills, this is an easy move to make. Why? Because general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott are originally from Carolina. Although Fitterer is not a transition from this regime – as he comes from the Seattle Seahawks – perhaps the power duo of the bill known Carolin so well helped things.
The Panthers make a late move to add Darryl Johnson before the cut-off day
As for Johnson, he brings a little experience and upward. In two years with Buffalo after being the seventh round, Johnson has 29 tackles and two sacks in his limited role. With the Panthers, defensive coordinator Phil Snow should. find more reps for the youngster so he can unleash any potential we have not yet seen.
Last year, Carolina used every draft to strengthen its defense, a unit that then fought but showed what to expect. By grabbing Williams, the Panthers take another swing at goal, while Buffalo gets some draft capital.
