The Panthers had until 4 p.m. Eastern time to sign the four-time Pro Bowl pick to a deal that would secure his long-term future in Carolina and free up salary-cap space this season.
Now the two sides can't discuss a new contract until the end of next season, when Carolina will have the option to place the franchise tag on him again.
The Panthers' career sacks leader had been locked in a prolonged dispute with the Panthers after first saying that he wanted to play elsewhere.
