Panthers extend center Ryan Kalil’s deal for two more seasons

The Panthers have shown their willingness to extend players, so long as they’re deemed key parts for the future.

So Monday, they added two years to center Ryan Kalil’s deal, the team announced.

The five-time Pro Bowl center’s deal was set to expire after this season, but now they have a little more security in the middle of a line that has grown into a good one. He’s a big part of that, dealing with a shuffling cast of characters inside, but settling in with Trai Turner and Andrew Norwell and helping the young guards solidify their run game.

Financial terms of the deal weren’t announced.

The Panthers have made a point to retain their under-contract stars, such as Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Greg Olsen, which makes it a little more clear how they viewed the value of cornerback Josh Norman, whose franchise tag was pulled so they could spend the money on something else.

    Pro-Bowl Center’s have a much longer shelf life than CB’s. Nothing to see here.

    Love it! I remember in 2012 when he took out an ad in the Charlotte observer calling for a trip to the super bowl. Love his swagger on the field and his leadership style on and off of it. Keep Pounding.

    I also remember when he took out that full page ad. He was off by several seasons. Maybe he should do it again and then the Panthers can get back to the Super Bowl in 3 more seasons.

    Don’t judge this guy by his brother’s play for the vikings. This is the good one.
