Panthers' Taylor Moton: Signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moton has already signed his franchise tender with the Panthers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Carolina reportedly still wants to ink Moton to a long-term deal, thereby using the franchise tag as a bridge to continue negotiations until mid-July. If terms can't be agreed upon by then, Moton will at least remain in house for 2021. Since being drafted by the team back in 2017, Moton has yet to miss a single regular-season game.

Panthers' Taylor Moton: Getting tagged
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers are giving Moton a franchise tag, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

The 2017 second-round pick has played all 16 games in each of his four NFL seasons, making 47 starts at right tackle and one on the blindside. He's earned a PFF grade of 76.2 or better each year as a starter, likely playing his way into a contract near $20 million per season. The Panthers reportedly plan to use the franchise tag as a bridge to negotiate a long-term deal, hoping to lock in Moton beyond 2021.

Panthers' Taylor Moton: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moton (knee) is officially active for Sunday's tilt against the Redskins.

Moton was expected to suit up despite battling the knee issue, so his inclusion in the lineup isn't a surprise. The 2017 second-round pick should assume his usual starting role as the team's right tackle.

Panthers' Taylor Moton: Should play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moton (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, Bill Voth of the Panthers' official site reports.

Moton worked as a limited practice participant all week, but he's still expected to play versus the Redskins on Sunday, per Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic.

Panthers' Taylor Moton: Picked by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Panthers selected Moton in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 64th overall.

It's not clear whether he'll play guard or tackle, but Moton should provide a considerable upgrade to the Carolina offensive line either way. He was a very good right tackle in college, and he showed standout athleticism at the Combine.
