Buccaneers are hosting DE Charles Johnson today

Carolina Panthers have released veteran defensive end Charles Johnson

Carolina Panthers former defensive end is in Tampa today meeting with the Buccaneers

Today the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting defensive end Charles Johnson today according to their website.

Johnson played his first nine seasons with the Panthers and has 63.5 career sacks, but he was heading into the final seasons of a lucrative six-year contract signed in 2011 before his release.

Injuries limited the 29-year-old Johnson to nine games and one sack in 2015, but he had averaged 10.5 sacks over the previous five campaigns. From 2010-14, only four players recorded more sacks than the former third-round pick out of Georgia: DeMarcus Ware, Jared Allen, Cameron Wake and J.J. Watt.

The Buccaneers could use a good veteran pass rusher and Johnson would probably love to play the team that drafted him and cut him twice a year.
