Panthers to re-sign C Bradley Bozeman
The White Rhino will not roam elsewhere.
As announced on Monday night, the Carolina Panthers will be re-signing center Bradley Bozeman. Per NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the deal is a three-year pact worth $18 million.
Bozeman first signed on with the Panthers last offseason—on a bargain of a one-year, $2.8 million agreement. While he did not begin the season as part of the starting lineup, the 28-year-old would eventually earn his way in.
That opportunity came in Week 7, slotting into center in place of an injured Pat Elflein. From that win on, Bozeman helped established a nasty, ground-and-pound offensive identity for Carolina.
He did not miss a single offensive snap to close out the 2022 campaign. Per Pro Football Focus, the 6-foot-5, 325-pound hog molly allowed 12 pressures through 311 opportunities while recording a 67.3 run-blocking grade—the second-highest of his career.
Bozeman’s return now solidifies the entire starting front—alongside left tackle Ikem Ekwonu, left guard Brady Christensen, right guard Austin Corbett and right tackle Taylor Moton.
