The Panthers had lost many key players in the previous off-season, including their top wide receivers, but Newton was able to lead the Panthers to a strong finish that was enough for an NFC South title.
After four seasons in the NFL, Newton is set to become a free agent after his 2015 player option expires. His player option will be worth $14.7 million.
The Panthers are reportedly working on a contract extension for their star quarterback.
He said that he is okay with letting the quarterback market reset though, as Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are also in line for large contract extensions.
Newton said that he does not want to receive a deal with incentives like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.
