Tahir Whitehead agrees to one-year deal with Panthers

Linebacker Tahir Whitehead has agreed to a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Whitehead was released by the Raiders a couple of weeks ago after recording more than 100 tackles in each of the last four seasons. He'll join a rebuilding Panthers squad and should step into a starting role on a defense that lost Luke Kuechly to retirement over the winter.

Tahir Whitehead records season-high in tackles

Tahir Whitehead logged eight solo tackles, six assisted tackles, and one TFL in 26-24 victory over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

Whitehead's 14 total tackles eclipse his previous high of 11, though he doesn't provide much in the way of secondary stats. He'll look to keep racking up the tackles against the hapless Bengals next week.
