The Carolina Panthers and offensive tackle Taylor Moton agreed to a four-year, $72 million extension that includes $43 million guaranteed at signing.

Moton became the starting right tackle in 2018 and has started every game for Carolina over the past three seasons.

Moton's annual average of $18 million per season ties him with Lane Johnson for second among NFL right tackles. 

Moton took some snaps at left tackle during offseason workouts, mostly due to injuries that limited Cameron Erving and Trent Scott. Erving, signed to a two-year, $10 million deal in free agency, is the front-runner for the left tackle job.
