Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Just four stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with four tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 26-7 win over the Saints.

Thompson also registered a quarterback hit, helping the Panthers shut down the usually dynamic Saints offense. The veteran will now strive for higher tackling volume as Carolina turns its attention toward Thursday's game in Houston.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Excellent to open season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with 10 tackles (five solo), a sack and an interception in Sunday's 19-14 win over the Jets.

Thompson stuffed the stat sheet, not only leading the Panthers in stops but also topping the team with three passes defended, including a second-quarter interception that he returned for 29 yards. That marked just the second pick of Thompson's career, and with a sack Sunday he already beat his total in the category from last year. Fresh off a personal-best 113 tackles in 2020, Thompson kept his momentum going with a superb season debut, boosting his stock as a centerpiece of Carolina's defense.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Adding weight this offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Reworks contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson restructured his contract with the Panthers on Wednesday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

The Panthers saved $6.1 million in salary-cap space by converting nearly $9 million of Thompson's base salary into a signing bonus. The 2015 first-round pick generated 114 tackles, five pass breakups and two forced fumbles during the 2020 season. He'll reprise his starting role at linebacker once again in 2021.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Posts 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with 10 tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Saints.

Thompson tied Tre Boston for Carolina's lead in stops, bringing his season total to 113 while playing all 16 games for the first time in his six-year career. The 26-year-old's consistent health enabled him to surpass last season's previous best in tackles, and Thompson also added five passes defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. As the Panthers' defensive leader following long-time superstar Luke Kuechly's retirement last offseason, Thompson figures to remain a key cog next season while under contract long-term.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Another seven stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with seven tackles (five solo) and forced a fumble in Sunday's 46-23 loss to the Buccaneers.

Thompson's tally included two stops for a loss, but his best play came in separating opposing running back Ronald Jones from the ball on Tampa Bay's second offensive play. In recovering that fumble, the Panthers then marched down a shortened field for their first touchdown Sunday. Despite a poor showing by the defense overall, Thompson can take pride in his individual performance, which brought his season total to 79 tackles in 10 games.
