The two-time Pro Bowler out of LSU started all 16 games for the Panthers previous year and, because of injuries to the offensive line, even saw time at right tackle. "#KeepPounding #SvckaFree", Turner tweeted Thursday afternoon.

One day after being named the Carolina Panthers' interim general manager, Marty Hurney made an important move with regards to the future of the franchise.

Clearly, the Panthers are not going to stop working in the front office after firing Dave Gettleman.

A Pro Bowler in each of the last two seasons, the 24-year-old agreed to a four-year, $45 million pact that includes $20.5 million guaranteed.

Selected No. 92 overall in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Turner was entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal, worth roughly $2.7 million.

The Panthers are also in talks to extend veteran tight end Greg Olsen, who hasn't ruled out a training camp holdout if he doesn't get a new deal.
