A pair of former Carolina Panthers defenders landed on their feet Wednesday—with one going back home (sort of).
That semi-homecoming will see defensive lineman Morgan Fox head back to Los Angeles on a deal with the Chargers. Fox, prior to his one year in Carolina, played his first four NFL seasons with the Rams—the Chargers’ fellow inhabitants over at SoFi Stadium.
That one season with the Panthers saw Fox record a career-high nine starts with 34 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The team parted ways with the 27-year-old on March 14, cutting Fox just two days before the start of free agency.
Earlier in the day, an older friend in James Bradberry also settled into a new home. Like Fox, the 28-year-old cornerback was released by his 2021 squad this offseason.
Bradberry inked on with the Philadelphia Eagles for a one-year, $10 million pact. After spending four campaigns with the Panthers, the former second-rounder signed on and played with the New York Giants over the past two seasons.
