Panthers Extend Michael Oher

Panthers Extend Michael Oher

The Carolina Panthers solidified Cam Newton's blindside through the 2019 season by awarding left tackle Michael Oher with a 3 year $21.6M extension. The deal contains $9.5M guaranteed, with $8M of that fully guaranteed at the time of signing (per ProFootballTalk).

At $7.2M, the signing makes Oher the 15th highest average paid left tackle in the game, while the $9.5M guaranteed ranks 22nd. Oher's gone through a bit of an up and down career since the Ravens selected him #23 overall back in 2009. He spent 5 years in Baltimore before signing a 4 year $20M free agent deal with the Titans - but was released just a year later. Carolina brought in Oher last year on a paultry 2 year $7M contract, and were rewarded with a very productive season. 

Including the $8M in new guarantees, Michael Oher has secured $32.5M in cash earnings since 2009.
