Panthers, Moton Agree to Four-Year, $72-Million Deal
It looks like most of this year's franchised players are going to make it to today's deadline without agreeing to new long-term contracts, and they'll have to play out the year on the franchise tag. One player did get in under the wire though: right tackle Taylor Moton of the Panthers. The deal is four years, $72 million with $43 million guaranteed. Moton is a road-grader who always comes out strong in ESPN's Run Block Win Rate. He was the only Panthers lineman last year to rank in the top 20 at his position in snaps per blown block.
