Newton will continue to be a strong component in the Panthers' rushing attack, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Newton has emerged as arguably the NFL's best dual-threat quarterback through his first four seasons, but that ability has also caused Newton to take a considerable amount of hits since entering the league. Additionally, a number of injuries last season resulted in further concern over Newton's long-term durability. Nonetheless, Panthers' GM David Gettleman revealed in a recent interview that Carolina does not plan on restricting Newton's running opportunities, as such action could inhibit their best playmaker.

Newton and the Panthers have agreed to a five-year, $103 million contract extension, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

In the first three years of the deal, Newton will rake in $67.6 million, which is the record for most money in a three-year span in NFL history. His dual threat status has resulted in at least 18 touchdown throws in each of his first four seasons and 33 total scores on the ground. However, his passing yardage has decreased in each campaign, as his receiving corps experienced some flux with the departure of Steve Smith prior to last season. Newton will aim to bounce back with the likes of WR Kelvin Benjamin (hamstring) and TE Greg Olsen.

Newton is reportedly close to finalizing a contract extension with the Panthers that would keep him with the team through the 2020 season, the News and Observer reports.

Per the report, such a deal -- which could average in the neighborhood of $20 million -- could be completed as soon as Monday. Newton, who the Panthers selected first overall in the 2011 draft, recorded 3,127 passing yards to go along with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 14 games last season.

Newton finished the 2014 campaign with 3,127 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, and also gained 539 rushing yards and five touchdowns across 14 games played this season.

Newton's 2014 season was largely overshadowed by injuries, as he entered the season coming off ankle surgery in March, then endured a slight ribs fracture during the preseason, before a scary December car accident left him with two fractures in his back. Overall, those ailments forced Newton to miss two games, ending his previously unblemished three-year string of starts. Over the course of the season, the Panthers' reliance on Newton to run the ball while operating behind a patchwork offensive line certainly raised questions over his health even when in uniform. Furthermore, a revamped receiving corp put additional pressure on Newton to carry an inconsistent offense, which is reflected in the quarterback's career-low numbers in most statistical categories. Although it was easily his worst season from a fantasy perspective, the Panthers rightfully aim to keep Newton as their franchise quarterback long-term. As a result, Newton is expected to reach a lucrative extension with Carolina this offseason, since 2015 is the final year on his current deal. With the former No. 1 draft pick secured, the Panthers' front office is then expected to help surround Newton with better weapons, which along with a healthy offseason, could potentially help Newton improve his numbers next season.

Newton completed 23-of-36 passes for 246 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions and rushed for 37 yards on 11 carries in Saturday's Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

His 90-yard pick-six to Kam Chancellor with less than six minutes remaining sealed the Panthers' fate, but it was a respectable performance overall from Newton. The 25-year-old certainly had his ups and downs this season, but he made do with what he had, and both he and the team can be encouraged with their play over the final month-plus. Look for Carolina to find Newton more offensive weapons this offseason.
