San Francisco nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin, coming off a season where he was franchised and played extremely well, reportedly settled for a one-year deal with New Orleans. Should be pretty interesting to see how Gregg Williams uses Franklin, Sedrick Ellis, and Shaun Rogers together.

Per Pro Football Talk, the Panthers have agreed to terms with defensive end Charles Johnson on a six-year, $76 million deal with $32 million in guaranteed money. $30 million of that guaranteed money will come as a signing bonus. Not bad for someone who had only started four games prior to the 2010 season.
