CHARLOTTE — The Panthers continued to work with the numbers Monday, restructuring another deal for a veteran to create some more salary cap flexibility.
The team restructured the contract of linebacker Shaq Thompson, clearing some more space under the cap for next year.
The 27-year-old Thompson is coming off one of his best seasons, despite missing three games with a foot injury. He had 104 tackles (second on the team behind Jeremy Chinn's 106), with two sacks and two interceptions.
Teams can begin negotiating with other teams' free agents on Mar. 14, and the league year begins on Mar. 16, at which point teams can sign players and execute trades.
