  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Back with Carolina

    The Panthers re-signed Smith-Marsette to a one-year contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Won't be tendered

    The Panthers chose to not tender Smith-Marsette on Friday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Smith-Marsette could be on the move this offseason after the Panthers decided not to tender him Friday. The 24-year-old wideout primarily served as the Panthers' top punt returner last season, recording 322 return yards (including a 79-yard touchdown). Despite Carolina not tendering the restricted free agent, the team would like to re-sign Smith-Marsette this offseason, according to Person.

    Smith-Marsette finished the regular season with eight catches on 10 targets for 51 yards and eight rushes for 74 yards and a touchdown in 17 games. He also returned 37 punts for 322 yards and another score.

    Smith-Marsette handled punt-return duties throughout the season and saw his offensive role expand after Laviska Shenault (ankle) was injured in November. Although he produced some good moments on gadget plays, it remains to be seen whether Carolina's new front office will look to retain Smith-Marsette as a restricted free agent this offseason.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Sidelined by illness Wednesday

    Smith-Marsette (illness) didn't practice Wednesday, David Newton of reports.

    Both Smith-Marsette and running back Miles Sanders were sidelined Wednesday due to illnesses, so a bug could be making its way around the Carolina locker room. Smith-Marsette has taken on a larger role in recent weeks with Jonathan Mingo (foot) on injured reserve, averaging 31.7 scrimmage yards in the last three games. The third-year wideout from Iowa will try to close out his season on a high note Sunday against the Buccaneers, but he'll first have to recover from his illness.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Garners four touches

    Smith-Marsette caught all three of his targets for 12 yards and rushed once for zero yards in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Jaguars.

    Smith-Marsette's reception tally marked a season high, yet unlike the past couple weeks, he failed to contribute any pop from his gadget role. Nonetheless, given his increased involvement over the last handful of games, Smith-Marsette could be utilized similarly in Sunday's season finale versus the Buccaneers.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Hits paydirt against Packers

    Smith-Marsette caught his lone target for 18 yards and rushed twice for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Packers.

    Smith-Marsette found the end zone for the first time this season, scoring on a 20-yard run in the second quarter. For the second straight week, the 24-year-old wideout did most of his damage on the ground. Despite his versatile skill set, Smith-Marsette's fantasy value is limited in the Carolina's struggling offense. The veteran will look to continue his increased involvement heading into a matchup with Jaguars in Week 17.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Extra involvement Sunday

    Smith-Marsette caught both of his targets for one yard and rushed four times for 31 yards in Sunday's 9-7 win over the Falcons. He also muffed a punt but recovered it himself.

    Smith-Marsette was used more as a gadget player Sunday, helping a poor Panthers offense move the ball through his involvement as a runner. As a result, his value should receive a slight uptick ahead of Week 16's game versus the Packers.

  • Panthers' Ihmir Smith-Marsette: Logs season-high 12 snaps

    Smith-Marsette played 12 of the Panthers' 72 snaps on offense and went without a target in Sunday's 21-18 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Since being acquired from the Chiefs shortly before Week 1, Smith-Marsette has suited up in all 12 of the Panthers' games while serving as the team's top punt returner. Though most of the value he provides to Carolina comes through his contributions on special teams, Smith-Marsette has started to see a slight uptick in playing time on offense at receiver while the Panthers have made Terrace Marshall a healthy inactive the past three weeks. The 12 snaps Smith-Marsette picked up Sunday represented a season-high total.
