NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the RT and the Panthers agreed upon a new four-year, $72 million contract with $43 million guaranteed, per a source informed of the situation.
The team later confirmed the deal ahead of the 4 p.m. ET deadline.
The $18 million-per-year average places Moton second among all right tackles, tied with the Eagles’ Lane Johnson and behind only the Saints’ Ryan Ramczyk. The $43 million is the third-most guaranteed money for a right tackle and seventh-most among all tackles.
It’s a massive deal for the Panthers’ best offensive lineman and ensures the club won’t have to worry about the position for a while
