CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Panthers have signed Shaq Thompson to a four-year extension, keeping the linebacker under contract through the 2023 season.

Thompson began his career in Thomas Davis' shadows but has since emerged as a reliable starter.

The five-year NFL veteran is averaging more than eight tackles a game. He has had double-digit tackle totals in four games this season, including a career-high 14 in Carolina's Week 3 win at Arizona. Thompson was the team's first-round draft pick in 2015.
