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: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (undisclosed) is present at Friday's practice, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Thompson's presence at team facilities Friday is essentially confirmation that he's come off the reserve/COVID-19 list, which puts him on track for Sunday's game against the Broncos. The Panthers are counting on Thompson to slot back into an every-down role at linebacker.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

The 26-year-old will be unavailable until he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols. It's unclear if Thompson tested positive for the virus or if he's a close contact of an infected individual.

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.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Makes six stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with six tackles (three solo) and defended a pass in Thursday night's 25-17 loss to the Falcons.

Thompson now sports 66 stops through eight games, putting him on pace for a career high in the category and his second straight 100-tackle season. Where Thompson can add some value, however, is in Carolina's pass rush, as he's yet to record a sack on the year.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Bounces back in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson made 13 tackles (eight solo), defended two passes and recovered a fumble he forced in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Chargers.

Thompson rebounded from a quiet Week 2 in a big way, leading Carolina in stops while also forcing a crucial turnover during the second quarter. For good measure, he also broke up a couple passes, leading the Panthers to their first victory. Through three games, the veteran is now tied for tops on his team with 27 total tackles.

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

Thompson recorded three tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Buccaneers.

Thompson played all 61 of Carolina's defensive snaps yet failed to make a big impact on a day Tampa Bay averaged 5.5 yards per rush. Following 12 stops to open the season, Thompson will hope to bounce back from Sunday's dip in Week 3 versus the Chargers.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Hits double digits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson finished with 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 34-30 loss to the Raiders.

Thompson's team-leading tally included 1.5 tackles for loss. The linebacker played every defensive snap, which should be a sign of things to come as he aims to replace the retired Luke Kuechly in the heart of Carolina's scheme. That role should be plenty conducive to fantasy success, as Thompson showed Sunday.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Primed for pivotal role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson is expected to fill the void in Carolina's defense left by Luke Kuechly's retirement, Shawn Krest of the North State Journal reports.

Thompson may fill Kuechly's role as the leader of Carolina's defense, but it's no guarantee that he'll fulfill the former All Pro's shoes in terms of production. Still, the 26-year-old is coming off the best statistical campaign of his career, and he looks primed to match, if not exceed, last year's 984 defensive snaps. His participation in training camp has been unhindered by last December's shoulder surgery.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Undergoes shoulder procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (foot/shoulder) had a cleanup procedure on his shoulder Thursday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Thompson is already ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Saints, so his sights are now set on getting back to health in time for offseason training. A timetable for the starting linebacker's recovery remains undisclosed, but it appears as though his procedure was minor.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Perry Fewell said Thursday that Thompson (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Saints, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Thompson has missed back-to-back practice sessions to begin the week, per Steve Reed of the Associated Press, so his lack of availability doesn't come as much of a surprise. In his stead, Jermaine Carter will likely play another expanded role on defense.

Panthers' Shaq Thompson: Not likely to play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (foot) is unlikely to play Sunday, Alaina Getzenberg of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Although the Panthers didn't practice Wednesday, Thompson was estimated as a non-participant per Getzenberg. Jermaine Carter saw 64 snaps in Week 16 with the 25-year-old sidelined and could see similar playing time Sunday against the Saints.
