Houston recently spent the last two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens where he accumulated 9.5 sacks last season. He is a four time pro bowler and is headed into his 13th season in the league.
The Panthers look to add to a defense that already has a premiere pass rusher in Brian Burns who is currently seeking a contract extension, Yetur Gross-Matos, and Shaq Thompson. The Panthers now have two players (Burns and Houston) who finished in the top 20 in sacks last season.
Defense will be a big point emphasis for this team heading into the regular season as they add a player who not only has experience but can stay healthy and productive over the course of a season.
