  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Reworks deal with Panthers

    Thomas agreed to a restructured contract with the Panthers on Thursday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Thomas signed a three-year extension in the 2022 offseason, and his reworked deal will help Carolina's cap flexibility. He's expected to occupy a backup role after the Panthers signed fellow tight end Hayden Hurst to a three-year contract Wednesday.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: No touchdowns in 2022

    Thomas caught 21 of 30 targets for 197 yards while playing all 17 games in the 2022 season.

    Thomas filled his usual blocking role while sharing the tight-end targets alongside Tommy Tremble for a second straight year. While Thomas' production over the past four seasons hasn't changed much, he notably hasn't scored since 2020. Despite the possibility of a new coaching staff and starting quarterback in 2023, it's hard to envision Thomas' value shifting significantly.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Catches one pass in loss

    Thomas caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Thomas was a non-factor in the contest while playing 36 of the Panthers' 66 offensive snaps. Fellow tight end Tommy Tremble played two more snaps than Thomas and was more productive, catching all three of his targets for 33 yards and a touchdown. In a near-even split of playing time with Tremble, Thomas offers little in the way of fantasy production. The 26-year-old will look to make the most of his limited opportunities on offense in a Week 18 matchup with the Saints.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Catches one pass

    Thomas caught one of three targets for 12 yards in Week 16's 37-23 win over the Lions.

    Thomas broke his three-game multi-catch streak but has still hauled in at least one pass in all 15 appearances this season. He'll strive to keep that streak going Sunday versus the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Set to play Saturday

    Thomas (thigh) was a full participant during practice Thursday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Saturday versus Detroit.

    Thomas popped up with a thigh injury and logged back-to-back limited sessions to begin Week 16 prep. However, the 26-year-old is still in line to play his 14th game in a row this season. Thomas has caught 19 passes on 26 targets for 176 yards in 2022, and he should reprise his role as the Panthers' No. 2 tight end Tommy Tremble.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Makes two grabs

    Thomas caught both of his targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 30-24 win over the Seahawks.

    Thomas has now made multiple receptions in three straight games. Although he's totaled just 56 yards over that span, he's at least occasionally helped Carolina connect on underneath throws.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Makes two grabs

    Thomas caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 23-10 win over the Broncos.

    Thomas played despite missing practice Thursday and Friday due to illness. In suiting up, the veteran was able to put together a second straight game with multiple catches, sending him into Carolina's bye week on a decent note.

  • Panthers' Ian Thomas: Good to go Sunday

    Thomas (illness) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

    Thomas received the questionable tag after he sat out practice Thursday and Friday with an illness, but he's been cleared to take the field Sunday. The 26-year-old caught three of four targets for 24 yards last week in Baltimore, and he's largely been unproductive in the passing game this season despite operating as Carolina's No. 1 tight end.
