CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cam Newton is now under contract with the Carolina Panthers for the next two seasons. The Panthers exercised the fifth-year option on Newtons contract, meaning the former No. 1 draft pick will be with the team at least through the end of the 2015 season. The team made the announcement Friday, after previously indicating it hoped to sign Newton to a long-term deal. Newton is slated to make $3.37 million this season and would receive $14.67 million in 2015 if he doesnt sign a contract extension before then. By exercising the option on Newtons rookie deal from 2011, the salary-cap strapped Panthers will have more time to work out a longer contract with the three-year NFL veteran and former Heisman Trophy winner. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman did not return phone calls Friday seeking comment. Newton said earlier in the week hes "absolutely fine" with the Panthers picking up the fifth year, but referred all contract talks to his agents and the Panthers front office. "Im trying to get back to the playoffs and do something the Carolina Panthers havent ever done in back to back years," Newton said. Newton has started all 48 games during his three seasons with Carolina. Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and the NFC South championship last year, completing a career-high 61.7 per cent of his passes with 24 touchdowns passing and six touchdowns rushing. The Panthers lost at home in the divisional playoffs to San Francisco. After that loss, Gettleman said he had no doubt he views Newton was the teams franchise quarterback. "He proved it this year," Gettleman said on Jan. 14. "He flat proved it." Johnny Hekker Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell.

Hes already dazzled teammates and fans in training camp. Next is helping the Bills kick off the preseason against the New York Giants in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, which you can watch live on TSN and TSN GO on Sunday at 8pm et/5pm pt. And its not lost on Watkins that Andre Reed will be in attendance, a day after the former Bills star receivers induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "I definitely want to go out there and put on a great show for him," Watkins said. "And I want to get a win. That would just start the team up and build confidence for everybody." Watkins has shown glimpses of why the Bills regarded him so highly in the draft. Buffalo gambled by trading its 2015 first-round pick to Cleveland and moved up five spots to select the Clemson player at No. 4. Hes shown breakaway speed by making numerous deep catches along the sideline, eliciting huge cheers from the stands. Watkins became a YouTube and Twitter sensation after videos showed him stumbling and nearly falling before recovering to make a one-handed catch in the end zone. Despite a slim, 6-foot-1, 211-pound frame, hes proven fearless in making catches in traffic. That was apparent during a full-team drill on the second day of camp. Quarterback EJ Manuels pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fluttered high into the air. Watkins raced back to make a leaping grab amid three defenders and came down with the ball in a pile of players. He also got poked in the eye. "There are two things I can do: I can wait for it to get picked off, or I can go make a play on it," Watkins said. "My first reaction was the ball was in the air, go make a play on it." Centre Eric Woood is among Bills veterans impressed by Watkins.dddddddddddd "At this point, it wasnt like shocking. I almost expected it," Wood said, referring to Watkins one-handed catch. "He is exactly what youd hope for given what we gave up to get him and how we took him." Thats an encouraging step for a Manuel-led passing attack that lacked consistency and big-play ability during the quarterbacks rookie season last year and contributed to the Bills 6-10 finish. "As a coach, you have expectations, but hes performed better than I wouldve expected," coach Doug Marrone said of Watkins. "I think a lot of people are excited." Giants safety Stevie Brown is looking forward to a closer view of Watkins. "He was definitely deserving to be the top receiver taken," Brown said. "He can jump over you and then take it 20 yards more. Hes got the ability to make tough catches. If he catches the ball, I can never let up on getting after him." The Giants will unveil a new offensive style under new co-ordinator Ben McAdoo. Theyre introducing a quick-paced, no-huddle attack to help take the pressure off quarterback Eli Manning, who threw a career-worst 27 interceptions last season. "I think we are going to put us right to the test and see how well we know the offence, know how well this thing can perform at a high level," receiver Victor Cruz said. Cruz returns as Mannings top threat, and third-year receiver Rueben Randle has moved into the No. 2 spot after the Giants lost Hakeem Nicks in free agency. The Giants also used a first-round draft pick on a receiver, selecting Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th pick. However, Beckham hasnt participated fully in practice since hurting his hamstring on the first day of camp.
