Cam Newton not planning a holdout

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton isn't planning a holdout.

Newton could get a contract extension as he heads into the fourth year of his original rookie deal. The Panthers can also exercise a fifth-year option for Newton.

"I'm not worried about contract discussions right now," Newton said Monday during The Dan Patrick Show. "My main focus is just becoming the better player I can become."
