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.

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.
