Denzel Perryman is heading west again. The Raiders and Panthers agreed to a deal that will send the veteran linebacker to Las Vegas, Adam Schefter of tweets.

The former Chargers starter will return to the AFC West in a pick-swap trade, with the Panthers receiving a sixth-round pick and the Raiders acquiring Perryman and a seventh-rounder, per Schefter (on Twitter). This will represent another fresh-start attempt for Perryman and give the Raiders some help on their suddenly weakened defensive second level.
