The Carolina Panthers plan on having their linebacking corps together for a long time.
The Panthers announced on Wednesday that they'd agreed to terms with James Anderson and reworked Thomas Davis' deal to keep both linebackers in Charlotte for at least the next five years.
The terms of Davis' deal weren't immediately available, however Anderson's deal is reportedly worth $22 million, with $8.5 guaranteed.
Davis, 28, has missed the most part of the last two seasons with torn ACLs. Despite those injuries, Panthers GM Marty Hurney believes that Davis' knees are healthy and in good shape.
Anderson, 27, had a career year for the Panthers last season, starting 15 games and recording 130 tackles.
