In the first quarter of the Carolina Panthers’ 2023 home opener, with 2 minutes and 35 seconds left, veteran linebacker Shaq Thompson was wheeled off the field. Trevor Penning, a left tackle for the New Orleans Saints, slammed Thompson’s leg after Panthers defensive end Deshawn Williams knocked him to the ground.

With a fractured fibula, Thompson would be out for the remainder of the season, thus that would be the last time we saw him. A lot of people pondered whether it would be Thompson’s final game wearing a Panthers uniform.

A revised contract that would pay the second-longest-tenured Panther $3.1 million and free up about $3 million in cap space was agreed to by Thompson and the Panthers on Saturday morning.

With 717 tackles, 52 tackles for loss, 31 quarterback hits, 26 passes defended, 12 sacks, and three interceptions during his career, Thompson has a hefty resume.
