Newton and the Panthers have agreed to a five-year, $103.8 million contract extension, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

In the first three years of the deal, Newton will rake in $67.6 million, which is the record for most money in a three-year span in NFL history. His dual-threat status has resulted in at least 18 touchdown throws in each of his first four seasons and 33 total scores on the ground. However, his passing yardage has decreased in each campaign, as his receiving corps experienced some flux with the departure of Steve Smith prior to last season. Newton will aim to bounce back with the likes of WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) and TE Greg Olsen.
Newton is reportedly close to finalizing a contract extension with the Panthers that would keep him with the team through the 2020 season, the News and Observer reports.

Per the report, such a deal -- which could average in the neighborhood of $20 million -- could be completed as soon as Monday. Newton, who the Panthers selected first overall in the 2011 draft, recorded 3,127 passing yards to go along with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 14 games last season.
Newton finished the 2014 campaign with 3,127 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, and also gained 539 rushing yards and five touchdowns across 14 games played this season.

2014

Newton is one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league, so it's been frustrating to see Carolina do such a poor job of surrounding him with playmakers at the receiver position. That frustration only worsened this offseason, as Carolina cut Steve Smith and lost left tackle Jordan Gross to retirement, somehow leaving Newton with significantly less help than he had a year ago, when he was already shouldering a large portion of the offensive workload. Although he upped his touchdown percentage to 5.1 in 2013, Newton's passing yardage totals have dropped in each of his three seasons, starting at 4,051 as a rookie before posting just 3,379 last year. As Newton's past fantasy owners are undoubtedly aware, his rushing production declined each year, too, with his rushing touchdowns decreasing from 14, to eight, to six. As one of the best players at his position and the league's premier rushing threat at quarterback, however, Newton will likely provide high fantasy value even if he struggles in real-life terms, so it's not all doom and gloom. Plus, the Panthers drafted 6-foot-5, 241-pound Kelvin Benjamin in the first round of the draft, a physical receiver who should be a terror in the red zone.

2013

Newton has been such a controversial and oft-discussed quarterback it's easy to forget he's been in the NFL for only two years. Newton failed to improve upon his stellar rookie year, compiling fewer passing yards, passing touchdowns and rushing touchdowns in 2012. As a result, he scored 88 fewer fantasy points, leading many to claim he was a bust. Nonetheless, he still threw for nearly 4,000 yards, turned in improved efficiency at 8.0 YPA, decreased his interceptions to 12 and managed to run for more than 700 yards and eight scores. No matter how you slice it, that's one heck of a season for any passer, especially one in his second year in the league. We shouldn't let Newton's abnormal rookie stats cloud our judgment of just how productive he was in his sophomore campaign. One of the easiest ways for Newton's fantasy performance to improve is simply by throwing the ball more often – something that could very well happen this year. Newton's 485 passing attempts ranked him only 19th in the NFL last year. If that total jumps to around 550, you're looking at a player who could easily lead the league in fantasy points. On top of all that, you can expect Newton's rushing totals to remain steady. Quarterback rushing totals are the most consistent of all fantasy football stats – one reason Newton was actually able to improve upon his 706 rushing yards as a rookie. Newton also had 14 carries inside the opponent's five-yard line in 2012 and converted seven for scores, so you can expect the Panthers will keep calling his number from in close.

2012

After he completed just 42.1 percent of his passes and averaged just 5.3 yards per attempt in the preseason, Newton’s total of 854 yards and three touchdowns passing and 71 yards and two touchdowns rushing in Weeks 1 and 2 couldn’t have been much more shocking. If there were something more shocking, it was that he hardly slowed down. Newton was too big, fast and strong to be contained as a runner, and he showed surprising accuracy and instincts as a passer, nearly becoming an NFL offense unto himself. By season’s end he threw for 4,051 yards (7.8 YPA), 21 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, while running for 706 yards (5.6 YPC) and 14 touchdowns. It wouldn’t surprise us if Newton were to regress slightly as a fantasy option, particularly due to a drop in rushing scores, but it’s also reasonable to expect some improvement from him as a passer in Year 2. Consider that Newton’s No. 2 WR from last year was Legedu Naanee, who finished 2011 with just 44 catches for 467 yards and a touchdown. The development of young wideouts Brandon LaFell and David Gettis could help Newton’s passing numbers improve, as could the addition of fourth-round wide receiver pick Joe Adams.

2011

With a huge arm, a big build and 4.59 speed, Newton’s potential is off the charts. But his one starting season in Division I was in Auburn’s one-read option offense, meaning Newton has next to no familiarity with the NFL tasks ahead of him. For that reason, it’s tough to see him winning the starting spot this year. But it’s also tough to see Jimmy Clausen going a full season without getting benched. Newton's only other competition is veteran Derek Anderson and it would be very surprising to see Anderson get the call before Newton. If he does get an extended run of playing time, he’s worth a look thanks to his running ability.
