Johnson spent the past four seasons as a starter in Cincinnati and will challenge Na'il Diggs for the starting job at outside linebacker with Carolina.
Johnson's agent, Andy Simms, said the deal was reached Friday morning after Simms visited the Panthers a day earlier.
Johnson has 112 and 109 tackles in the past two seasons. He's the biggest name the Panthers have brought in since free agency began a week ago, joining guard Keydrick Vincent, defensive lineman Tyler Brayton and cornerback Ricardo Colclough.
