Panthers | Luke Kuechly's option to be picked up

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 13:33:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers LB Luke Kuechly will have his fifth-year option picked up by the team, according to general manager Dave Gettleman. Kuechly is starting the final year of his rookie deal that gives him a 2015 salary cap number of around $4 million. Kuechly will be tied to the team through the 2016 season, and his salary next year will be the average of the 10 highest-paid middle linebackers, which currently is around $7.5 million. Carolina has until May to exercise the option, and it doesn't preclude them from working out a long-term deal with Kuechly.

Panthers | No easy solution with Greg Hardy

Tue, 18 Feb 2014 19:39:51 -0800

There were no new developments in the contract situation with the Carolina Panthers and DE Greg Hardy. The team has two weeks to decide whether to use the franchise tag, which would buy the team another year to negotiate with Hardy. However, if they do tag him, it would consume nearly all of the team's unused cap space, which is a hefty price considering the team is looking to lock up franchise cornerstones QB Cam Newton and LB Luke Kuechly with huge deals in the next two years.
