Stunning plot twist: Former #Panthers C Ryan Kalil will come out of his brief retirement to join... the #Jets, sources say. He’s agreed to terms, pending physical. A huge veteran influence to join QB Sam Darnold at a position of need.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 1, 2019
While with the Panthers, Kalil was a 5-time pro-bowler and was named to the NFL’s All-Pro team twice as well.
Kalil has always been a solid Center for the Panthers and will now take his talents to cover Sam Darnold and newly signed Running Back Le’veon Bell.
The deal between the Jets and Kalil is said to be for 1-year and $8.4 million.
