Today the Carolina Panthers picked up the fifth year option on linebacker Luke Kuechly. Kuechly has played and started every regular season game for the Panthers since entering the NFL in 2012, notching 473 tackles, defending 27 passes, recording seven interceptions and racking up six sacks. The guy is a freak of nature, and the Panthers had to pick up the option. They better try to get a long term deal done soon otherwise his 2016 figure will be a big one.
Kuechly will now be due $11.1 million for 2016.
