The Carolina Panthers have re-signed defensive end Julius Peppers to a one-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.
Next season will be the 38-year-old veteran’s 17th in the NFL.
Playing all 16 games last season, Peppers amassed 21 tackles and 11 sacks for Carolina.
Pepper is fourth on the all-time sack leaders list with 154.5. He needs just six more to surpass Kevin Greene for sole possession of third all time.
