Bus Cook, agent for Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle), said Newton is doing well in his rehab from offseason ankle surgery. Newton is expected to miss all of the offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp.
Fantasy Tip: Newton will have the entire offseason to recover from his surgery but will also miss time to work with his new wide receivers, which could hurt his chemistry with them. Newton should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback entering the 2014 season because of the injury and the wide receivers on the roster.

The Carolina Panthers are expected to use the fifth-year option to lock up QB Cam Newton through the 2015 season. The Panthers are unlikely to get to the fifth year of Newton's contract as they continue to try to sign him to a long-term deal.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) had been bothered by his ankle injury since his playing days in college, according to head coach Ron Rivera. Newton aggravated the injury in a Dec. 22 game against the New Orleans Saints last year.

The Carolina Panthers agreed to terms with WR Jerricho Cotchery (Steelers) Thursday, March 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Between Cam Newton spending the offseason rehabbing after ankle surgery and the lack of depth at the position, Cotchery is likely a No.4 or No. 5 wide receiver at best. Look elsewhere if you have better options on draft day.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) had successful surgery to fix ligament damage in his left ankle Wednesday, March 19, and his full recovery process will take four months. Newton could be allowed to throw on a limited basis before that, however. ESPN's Stephania Bell said Newton's running shouldn't be affected by his surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Newton will miss valuable training time over the summer, especially with whoever his new receivers may be for the upcoming season. The absence of any notable wideouts on roster right now is perplexing. Newton has become a sizeable risk as a QB1, and he's probably safer as a backup the way things are looking.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton (ankle) will have ankle surgery Wednesday, March 18. Ligaments in Newton's left ankle had stretched out, and the procedure will tighten them. The recovery time is expected to be up to four months, which would coincide with the start of training camp.
Fantasy Tip: This news is not ideal for Newton, especially with the situation at wide receiver. Newton will need time with whoever the team brings in at that position. Newton may come at a bit of a cheaper price since he will spend the rest of the offseason rehabbing. With the lack of weapons around him, Newton is probably a borderline No. 1 quarterback, at best.

There were no new developments in the contract situation with the Carolina Panthers and DE Greg Hardy. The team has two weeks to decide whether to use the franchise tag, which would buy the team another year to negotiate with Hardy. However, if they do tag him, it would consume nearly all of the team's unused cap space, which is a hefty price considering the team is looking to lock up franchise cornerstones QB Cam Newton and LB Luke Kuechly with huge deals in the next two years.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton said he would consider holding out this offseason if he does not receive a new contract. Newton said he believes he is a leader on the team and should be with the team.
Sun, 26 Jan 2014 07:26:05 -0800
Carolina Panthers general manager David Gettleman said he will offer QB Cam Newton a fair contract to start contract negotiations. "It's going to be fun," Gettleman said. "It's going to be interesting. There's going to be a lot of work, a lot of research. A lot of thought is going to go into it. Philosophically, I'm going to start with a fair offer. It's going to be fair. And then we'll move from there."
