Johnson reported to training camp 10 pounds lighter, as he now checks in at 275 pounds, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson missed seven games last season due to a hamstring injury, so by dropping some excess weight, he'll hopefully be less susceptible to nagging injuries. Additionally, after his production took a huge hit when healthy last term, Johnson appears motivated for a rebound campaign, and could benefit from the attention Kawann Short and Kony Ealy draw from opposing blockers this season.

Johnson agreed to a one-year deal with the Panthers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Johnson will reportedly take a pay cut to remain with a team he's played the first nine seasons of his career with, despite visiting two other franchises (Giants and Buccaneers). The veteran defensive end missed seven contests in 2015 due to a hamstring issue, and he didn't produce much (1.0 sack, 12 tackles) even when on the field. While the terms haven't been officially released, it appears he'll earn a paltry $3 million compared to the $15 million he was slated to rake in if the Panthers kept him originally. While it's reasonable to expect a bounce back from Johnson, his age likely limits the potential production at this point.

Johnson intends to return to the Panthers for the 2016 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers jettisoned the veteran defensive end last Thursday, but after making visits with the Giants and Buccaneers, he may have realized that pastures aren't always greener on the other side. An incentive-laden deal is likely the best he can expect in Carolina, but he did tally double-digit sacks as recently as 2013.

Johnson is slated to visit both the Giants and Buccaneers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Injuries limited Johnson to nine games last season, with the defensive end racking up just 12 tackles and one sack in that span. That said, if Johnson can re-prove his health, the 29-year-old could be in for a bounce-back campaign with his next NFL team, given his past prowess as a pass-rusher.
