Panthers Extend Jake Delhomme's Contract through 2014

Love him or hate him, it doesn't matter. Marty Hurney and John Fox think he's the right fit for the Panthers quite some time. The Panthers have extended Jake Delhomme's contract through 2014 for apparently $42.5 million including $20 million in guarantees.

"We all know last year was a good year that ended terribly, especially for myself," Jake said. "That's fuel to my fire to work (hard) this offseason the way we have been and I have been so far. I'm looking forward to adding a few more pieces (in the draft) on Saturday and Sunday and seeing what we can do."

"We think very highly of Jake and the contributions he has made to the Carolina Panthers," said general manager Marty Hurney. "He has been a leader on the field, is a talented quarterback, is a perfect fit for our team and was a big reason we were able to win the NFC South last year. He has also always represented the team in the highest manner and earned the respect of everyone throughout the organization."

Although as pointed out by usana_gaines, this doesn't mean he will actually be playing that long. And how knows what type, if any, salary cap there will be, possibly making any cuts down the road less harsh.
