Panthers LB Shaq Thompson Hoping to Stay in Carolina After 2019

At the conclusion of the 2019 season, linebacker Shaq Thompson is set to become an unrestricted free agent.

If Thompson has his way, however, he’ll be staying put in Carolina with the Panthers, Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.

“This is a place I’ve been for five years,” Thompson told the Charlotte Observer’s Brendan Marks. “I don’t want to know any other place.”

With Carolina having picked up his fifth-year option, the 2016 NFL Draft’s 25th pick is set to make $9.23 million in 2019.

In 2018, Thompson’s 79 tackles in 11 starts (14 games) tied Thomas Davis for second on the Panthers and his 3.5 sacks were third on the team.
