Newton says nothing is seen as imminent with Moton, who is one of Carolina’s top priorities for a new deal. He’s been the Panthers’ starting right tackle for the past two seasons.
“I have a lot of trust in my agent. I’m 100 percent focused on Taylor Moton being the best offensive tackle I can be,” Moton said.
Moton, 26, was drafted by the Panthers in the second round out of Western Michigan in 2017. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $4.158 million rookie deal and is set to make a base salary of $1.032 million in 2020.
In 2019, Moton started all 16 games for the Panthers at right tackle. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 17 tackle out of 82 qualifying players.
