Panthers agree to terms with free agent TE Ian Thomas


AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers announced they’ve agreed to a three-year contract with unrestricted free agent tight end Ian Thomas. The deal is worth $16.95 million and includes $8 million in guaranteed money, according to a person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because contract terms were not publicly announced. Thomas, who is considered a strong blocking tight end, had 18 receptions for 188 yards last season. His most productive year as a receiver came as a rookie in 2018 when he caught 36 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns. The Panthers still have 19 unrestricted free agents.
