  • Panthers' Derrick Brown: Lands massive contract extension

    Brown has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Panthers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Per Schefter, Brown's four-year extension with Carolina is for $96 million and includes $63.165 million guaranteed. The 2020 first-rounder is coming off a 2023 regular season in which he racked up 103 tackles -- an NFL record for a defensive lineman -- to go along with 2.0 sacks and an interception in 17 games. By extending Brown, the Panthers retain a major piece in the middle of their defense for the next several years, a key move for a unit that no longer includes Brian Burns following his trade to the Giants in March.

  • Panthers' Derrick Brown: Record-setting season

    Brown finished the regular season with 103 tackles (57 solo), including 2.0 sacks, along with an interception in 17 games.

    Brown enjoyed an exemplary campaign, as his tackle total set an NFL record for defensive linemen. The 25-year-old has increased his tackle tally across each of his four seasons, making good on the first-round investment Carolina made in him back in 2020. While 2024 is currently slated to be Brown's final year with the Panthers, it wouldn't be surprising if a new front office seeks to secure him to a long-term deal before next season.

  • Panthers' Derrick Brown: Productive in loss

    Brown logged nine total tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

    Brown has had a career year for the Panthers' defense, recording 88 total tackles, including six tackles for loss and 1.0 sacks, while deflecting four passes and intercepting one as well. The Auburn product ranks second on Carolina in total tackles, but his 88 are good enough to make him the NFL's leading tackler amongst defensive lineman. Expect Brown to continue wreaking havoc for the Panthers' defense as the year goes on.
