NFL Free Agency: Charles Johnson Re-Signed by Carolina Panthers, but What Next?

With the NFL lockout finally over and teams looking to fill roster needs before training camps begin this weekend, a frenzied run on free agents has begun.

The Carolina Panthers quickly locked down their most prized free agent, defensive end Charles Johnson, signing him to a six-year, $72 million deal Tuesday afternoon.

The 25-year-old Johnson, who had a breakout season in 2010 with 11.5 sacks, was one of the premier free agents in this year's class, attracting serious attention from the Atlanta Falcons, the Cleveland Browns and a number of other teams.

Carolina has gotten off to a good start in this hectic free-agency period, but they have more work to do in order to improve on last year's league-worst 2-14 record.

The Panthers have talent at a lot of positions, and they are only a few players away from at least competing in the tough NFC South.

Here are four players at the weakest positions, quarterback, wide receiver, defensive tackle and safety, that the Panthers should consider signing to help them back to respectability.
