Carolina defensive coordinator Phil Snow said Wednesday that Thompson has added about 10 pounds to his frame in the offseason, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

The Washington product had a solid season in 2020, racking up a career-high 114 tackles (64 solo) to go with two forced fumbles across 16 games. Thompson is hoping the extra weight will make him harder to block, while still keeping him agile enough to make plays from sideline to sideline.
