CHARLOTTE – Offensive tackle Daryl Williams has signed a one-year contract to remain with the Panthers.
Williams briefly became an unrestricted free agent when his rookie deal expired Wednesday. A fourth-round pick from Oklahoma in 2015, Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury in the 2018 opener against Dallas.
"We know what Daryl brings to our offensive line when he is healthy," general manager Marty Hurney said. "He's been working very hard at rehabbing from his knee injury and is coming back with something to prove. He has position flexibility and fits in with one of our top priorities of the offseason – to make our offensive line as strong and as deep as we can make it."
The 6-foot-6, 330-pound right tackle started all 16 games in 2017 and earned second-team All-Pro honors in the process. He started 10 games the year before.
