Charles Johnson Begins Job Search

An hour after — and it's strange to use this next word, but here goes – former Carolina Panthers defensive end Charles Johnson jokingly posted this job-seeking pic to his Instagram account:

ESPN's Josina Anderson was the first to report Johnson's initial interview:

So Johnson, who racked up the second-most sacks in Panthers' history, will start his job hunt with the former employer of the man who asked Johnson to take a significant pay cut.

Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman saved $11 toward his 2016 salary cap by releasing Johnson.

Value-wise, it makes sense from a Panthers' perspective, and you can't blame Johnson for trying to find a team who will pay him more than Gettleman would have. If that doesn't happen, the two sides could end up reuniting.

But the Giants, who are looking to rebuild their defense this offseason, have gobs of cap space. Plenty of that will likely go toward pass rushers.

After Johnson stops by, they're reportedly going to chat with Mario Williams. They could also toss money at a couple of their own impending free agents, Jason Pierre-Paul and Robert Ayers.

  1. Best of luck to him in his search. Hopefully he comes back but I think that’s more so “wishful thinking” at this point. Everyone has a bad year for the most part.

  2. I’m glad this millionaire can clown around about searching for jobs like us regular folk… all sarcasm aside, i do wish him the best of luck with the years he has left and i hope he gets past his injury bug, i always kept high hopes since he was a no name back up and JPep was the disgruntled starter
