  • Chiefs' Jermaine Carter: Signing with Kansas City

    Carter is signing with the Chiefs on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Carter spent the first four seasons of his career with the Panthers, and he hasn't missed a game during that time. He racked up a career-high 88 tackles (38 solo) with a pass defense and a fumble recovery in 2021, and he should have a chance to carve out a prominent role among Kansas City's linebackers.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Secures starting role

    Coach Matt Rhule named Carter as the starting middle linebacker Tuesday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports. The 28-year-old recorded 46 tackles (25 solo) in 16 games for the Panthers last season, and he showed well in training camp to earn the starting spot. Denzel Perryman, who signed a two-year, $6 million deal in the spring, was traded to the Raiders on Wednesday after being beat out by Carter.

    Carter will start at middle linebacker in Sunday's game against the Lions, Jonathan M. Alexander of The Charlotte Observer reports. Carter has usurped Tahir Whitehead as the Panthers' starting middle linebacker.

  • Panthers' Jermaine Carter: Could start Week 16

    Interim Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Carter will slot into the starting lineup if Shaq Thompson (ankle) is forced to miss any time, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Carter normally plays a depth role in Carolina's linebacker corps, but he could be in line to start in Indianapolis on Sunday with Thompson having missed back-to-back practices. The 2018 fifth-round pick could have limited fantasy value in deep IDP formats if Thompson indeed misses time.
