This offseason, several NFL teams are no question cap-strapped and are looking at ways to get themselves in a better spot. Well, the Carolina Panthers were able to make some big moves on Wednesday, with running back Christian McCaffrey and linebacker Shaq Thompson helping out in a big way.

That's because the two standouts agreed to restructure their contracts with the team. With this, it not only provides the team with more financial flexibility, but opens the door for them to perhaps make some moves in free agency as well.

As you might be able to guess, head coach Matt Rhule and the front office are without question delighted by Wednesday's big moves. This is only going to help out the Panthers in the long run, with the team hoping to turn the corner and make some serious noise in the NFC.

These moves by Thompson and McCaffrey should come as no surprise either, with the two ready to do whatever it takes to help out Carolina. Fans absolutely love seeing this.
