Panthers officially announce new 1-year deal for LS JJ Jansen

Year No. 16 is officially ready to begin for the longest-tenured Carolina Panther.

As announced by the organization on Monday morning, long snapper JJ Jansen will be returning for the 2024 campaign on a new one-year deal. The agreement was first reported on by Joseph Person of The Athletic this past Friday.

Jansen came to Carolina way back in 2009, when the Green Bay Packers traded away the University of Notre Dame special teamer for a conditional 2011 draft pick. The tiny investment would pay off for the Panthers, who have seen Jansen play in every one of the team’s 243 games since the swap.

Those 243 appearances stand as a franchise record, one he captured in the middle of the 2022 campaign. The previous record holder was kicker John Kasay, who recorded 222 games in the black and blue from 1995 to 2010.

With his return, the 38-year-old Jansen will now play under his fifth different full-time head coach in Dave Canales.
