The Panthers have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Cam Newton. He's under contract through 2015 now.
No doubt the Panthers were going to exercise the option on their franchise quarterback. The question becomes for fantasy owners though, can Newton be trusted this coming season as he is recovering, supposedly at a rapid pace, from ankle surgery and does he have enough talent around him to make him worth the risk. I am leaning towards no.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Dwayne Bowe plans on revitalizing his career in Cleveland in 2015.
LOL. Literally. Bowe failed to reach 100 receiving yards in a single game last year and didn't catch a single touchdown pass. Alex Smith is no Peyton Manning, but he's significantly more capable than anyone who will be throwing the ball to Bowe in Cleveland. The Browns have brought in Josh McCown this offseason and obviously still have Johnny Manziel in tow. It wouldn't be all that surprising to see third-stringer Thad Lewis get some reps at some point. Maybe it's possible that Johnny Football is better than he looked last year and he can get a little something going with Bowe, but that seems like a long shot. Analysis: Brett Talley
