Falcons promoted LB Ahmad Thomas to their active roster.
Falcons signed TE Carson Meier and LB Quentin Polin to their practice squad.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the Panthers are considering making an “outside the box” coaching hire and that came in response to a question about if the team would pursue a candidate who is currently the head coach of another team.
If that’s the case, Florio says the most obvious candidate would be Steelers HC Mike Tomlin, who Panthers owner David Tepper is familiar with from his time as a minority owner in Pittsburgh.
Carolina would likely have to surrender cash and draft picks, assuming Tomlin and the Steelers were even open to considering the move.
