The Carolina Panthers have agreed upon a new three-year deal with Mario Addison.
"Mario has shown he is one of the best emerging pass rushers in the league and he deserves this contract," general manager Dave Gettleman told the team website. "He consistently affects the quarterback, and we envision an increased role for him in our defense. He's a pro in the way he approaches the game and brings an upbeat attitude to our locker room. We're thrilled he will continue his career with the Panthers."
Addison led the Panthers in sacks this season with a career-high 9.5.
