    Panthers fans split over Kelvin Benjamin fat-shaming

    To hear the internet tell it, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin reported to camp looking like a sumo wrestler who couldn’t possibly play meaningful football on any level.

Here is a look at what Thompson has done so far in his career: The Carolina Panthers linebacker was recently named one of the top 25 players in the league under the age of 25 by Brett Whitefield at Pro Football Focus. Despite playing limited snaps through his first two seasons, no linebacker under the age of 25 has graded better on a per-snap basis than Shaq Thompson in Carolina. Thompson notched 30 defensive stops in 2016 on just 533 total snaps, and wasn’t beat for a pass longer than 22 yards all season. With an aging Thomas
