Staying with team
Thompson agreed Saturday to re-work the remainder of his two-year contract with the Panthers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The veteran linebacker had an untenable $24.6 million cap hit entering Saturday, prompting many to assume Thompson would be a cap casualty. Instead, the valued leader will return for his ninth year with the franchise and try to add onto his string of four straight seasons with 100-plus tackles.
