The Carolina Panthers have agreed to a new three-year deal with defensive end Mario Addison.
“Mario has shown he is one of the best emerging pass rushers in the league and he deserves this contract,” general manager Dave Gettleman told the team website. “He consistently affects the quarterback, and we envision an increased role for him in our defense. He’s a pro in the way he approaches the game and brings an upbeat attitude to our locker room. We’re thrilled he will continue his career with the Panthers.”
The Panthers fill an immediate need at pass-rusher by re-signing Mario Addison, but they may still look to add an every-down defensive end.
Addison said he believes he can be an every down end, but will play whatever role the team wants.
“We met halfway in a good agreement that is a really fair deal for me,” Addison said. “I made my name here. I came here in 2012 and worked my way up.”

Addison, 29, led the Panthers in sacks this past season with a career-high 9.5. He has 22 over the past three seasons, which also is ahead of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short (20.5) for the team lead during that span.

While the return for Brent is two weeks earlier than the original conditions set forth in a suspension announced by Roger Goodell, the NFL reportedly agreed to an adjustment to the terms of his 10-game suspension. Still, Brent won’t be eligible to play for the Cowboys until Nov. 23 against the New York Giants.
A seventh-round selection in the 2010 NFL Supplemental Draft, Brent played in 39 games at defensive tackle during his three seasons with the Cowboys, starting five games in his final season in 2012 before the fatal incident ended his year.
