Panthers sign long snapper J.J. Jansen to five-year, $5.5 million deal
The Carolina Panthers have kept long snapper J.J. Jansen off the free agent market. They locked him up with a five-year, $5.5 million contract today. "He's consistent, and that's the first thing you look for," Panthers special-teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven said. "He's earned this. He affects the entire special teams. He's got some size. He's very smart and he's got a lot of leadership ability. I can't say enough good things about him." Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
