Newton will earn $14.67 million in 2015, if the Panthers and Newton are unable to come to an agreement on a long-term extension before then. Newton will be making just $3.378 million in 2014 which makes him one of the NFL’s best values this coming season.
The Panthers have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Cam Newton. He's under contract thru 2015 now.

It is hard to believe the Panthers and Newton will not have a new deal worked out prior to the 2015 season. A season ago Newton completed 61.7-percent of his passes for 3,379 yards, 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
