If money talks, Carolina just declared loud and clear how they feel about Matt Moore.
The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers placed a first- and third-round tender on the restricted free agent, ensuring that he’s not going anywhere. Moore will make $3.043 million, quite a bump for the undrafted player.
The fact that Carolina didn’t want to risk some team sniffing around Moore for a first-round pick says he’s got a good chance to open next season as a starter. After that, who knows?
This qualifies as bad news for any quarterback that likes the Panthers uniforms.
