The free agency spending spree continues for the Carolina Panthers on defense as the team is signing defensive end Morgan Fox, formerly of the Los Angeles Rams, to a two-year deal that is reportedly worth up to $8.5M.

Fox was an undrafted free agent out of Colorado State University Pueblo in 2016 who signed with, and has more or less been with the Los Angeles Rams since then. Last season he posted six sacks and nine quarterback hits as a versatile defensive lineman who is capable of rushing from the interior as well as the edge.

Fox’s contract with the Panthers includes $7M in guaranteed money and another $1.5M in potential incentives. There are no reports yet as to whether those incentives are based on playing time, performance, or other metrics.

Fox joins a defensive-heavy free agency class that includes edge Haason Reddick and inside linebacker Denzel Perryman as well as offensive guard Pat Elflein and offensive tackle Cam Erving.
