Panthers Pick Up Luke Kuechly’s Option


Andrew Luck was one of the more obvious cases of a team picking up a fifth-year option.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was another. And on Saturday, general manager Dave Gettleman and Co. made that one official, too.

Kuechly, the No. 9 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has been one of the league’s best defensive players over the past three seasons and is well worth the $11.1 million he’ll be guaranteed in 2016.
