  • Panthers' Matt Paradis: Out for season

    Paradis (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Paradis' worst fears were confirmed after undergoing further tests, and the Panthers' starting center will miss the remainder of the campaign as a result. This is a big blow for the offensive line, as Paradis is a huge asset for them. Sam Tecklenburg is expected to take over at center, though Pat Elflein is also an option once he recovers from his hamstring injury.

    Paradis agreed to terms with the Panthers on a restructured contract Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Paradis has agreed to convert roughly $7 million of his $8 million salary into a signing bonus, a move which creates $4.6 million in cap space for Carolina.

    Paradis (lower leg) will not be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list and has been cleared for camp, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

  • Panthers' Matt Paradis: Sets sights on training camp

    Paradis (lower leg) continues to progress "smoothly" and is hoping to receive full clearance ahead of training camp, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Earlier this offseason, Paradis suggested he could be fully cleared in time for June minicamp, but it seems he may have jumped the gun a little bit. While there's still time for the center to make it back to full form by then, Carolina has little reason to rush the 29-year-old back into action with the start of the season still several months away.

  • Broncos' Matt Paradis: Reaches deal with Carolina

    Paradis intends to sign a three-year, $27 million deal with the Panthers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Paradis, the top center on the free-agent market, wasted no time in finding a new role with the Panthers. He'll replace veteran center Ryan Kalil, who retired earlier this summer, in protecting quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) and opening holes for Christian McCaffery. The 29-year-old veteran landed on injured reserve last season due to a fractured right fibula sustained Week 9, but hadn't missed an offensive snap prior to the aforementioned injury since entering the league in 2014.
