The Panthers reached a deal late Friday with former Vikings WR Charles Johnson. That gives Carolina both of the NFL's players by that name -- the other plays DE -- as well as a speed receiver to fill Ted Ginn's vacated role.

He'll likely fit behind WR Devin Funchess as well and will need to compete with fellow free-agent addition Russell Shepard -- plus whoever else arrives this offseason.

We'll see if rookie WR Laquon Treadwell can make a play for the starting job opposite Stefon Diggs.

Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Lions. He’s expected to play behind WRs Mike Wallace and Stefon Diggs and isn’t a viable Week 7 fantasy starter.
