    The Panthers have secured a key piece of the team's offensive line for years to come.

    Right tackle Taylor Moton has agreed to a five-year deal with Carolina, per sources. He is under contract now through the 2025 season and is still scheduled to earn about $13.75 million in 2021, as he would have if a long-term deal had not been reached.

    The total value of the contract is five years, $85 million with $43 million guaranteed, per a league source. After the 2021 season, he will earn $70.5 million for four seasons.

    The two sides had until 4 p.m. Thursday to work out a long-term deal, which came together just an hour before the deadline. The two sides had been talking for months. He would have been set to become a free agent in 2022 if an extension was not agreed to by that time.

    Of the seven players across the league that were still scheduled to play on the tag going into the week, Moton was the only one who agreed to a long-term deal by the deadline. With an average of $17 million per season over the five years, he is now tied for the ninth-highest paid offensive tackle based on average salary, per Spotrac. The $43 million guaranteed is the eighth-most among tackles.
