CHARLOTTE, N. Cheap Adidas Shoes .C. -- Cam Newton is now under contract with the Carolina Panthers for the next two seasons. The Panthers exercised the fifth-year option on Newtons contract, meaning the former No. 1 draft pick will be with the team at least through the end of the 2015 season. The team made the announcement Friday, after previously indicating it hoped to sign Newton to a long-term deal. Newton is slated to make $3.37 million this season and would receive $14.67 million in 2015 if he doesnt sign a contract extension before then. By exercising the option on Newtons rookie deal from 2011, the salary-cap strapped Panthers will have more time to work out a longer contract with the three-year NFL veteran and former Heisman Trophy winner. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman did not return phone calls Friday seeking comment. Newton said earlier in the week hes "absolutely fine" with the Panthers picking up the fifth year, but referred all contract talks to his agents and the Panthers front office. "Im trying to get back to the playoffs and do something the Carolina Panthers havent ever done in back to back years," Newton said. Newton has started all 48 games during his three seasons with Carolina. Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and the NFC South championship last year, completing a career-high 61.7 per cent of his passes with 24 touchdowns passing and six touchdowns rushing. The Panthers lost at home in the divisional playoffs to San Francisco. After that loss, Gettleman said he had no doubt he views Newton was the teams franchise quarterback. "He proved it this year," Gettleman said on Jan. 14. "He flat proved it." Cheap Nike Shoes .

Altuve had three hits to give him 209 this season and drove in two runs, leading the Astros to a 3-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night. The major league hits leader is just one hit shy of tying the franchise record of 210, set by Craig Biggio in 1998. "Hes a magician with the wand," interim manager Tom Lawless said. "Ive seen it a long time, but seeing it up close and personal, its amazing what he can do with the bat in his hand." Houston has won five of its last eight games and with 67 wins has already made a 16-game improvement from last years franchise-worst 51-111 finish with 12 games left. "I feel really good," Altuve said. "We are in a good moment. We are creating some momentum and we are winning games." Clevelands wild-card hopes continue to fade with a fourth straight loss. They entered the night five games back for the second AL wild card. "Were in this thing until they tell me were out of it," left fielder Michael Brantley said. "Thats how I look at it. That is how everyone in this locker room looks at it. We need to score more runs, we need to play better baseball. There is no other way to put it." The Astros trailed by one in the third inning with runners at second and third when Altuves single scored them both to put Houston up 2-1. Houston starter Collin McHugh (10-9) allowed five hits and one run -- none earned -- in 6 2-3 innings, to extend his career-best winning streak to six games. He left after taking a comebacker to his left arm in the seventh. He was able to get the ball to first for an out on the play before leaving with what the team called a bruised forearm. He said after the game that he was OK and that he didnt expect to miss his next start. "He had a really, really good breaking ball," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Hee threw it a lot, he threw it for strikes. http://www.cheapshoesfree.com/. He had a little cutter that got under our barrel. I thought he pitched really well." Chad Qualls pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save. Indians starter Zach McAllister (3-7) allowed seven hits and two runs in six innings in his first major league start since July 31. Altuve, whose .342 average leads the majors, has a career-high 54 RBIs and Monday was his 63rd multhit game of the season, which extends a franchise record. He singled in the fifth and his third hit was a triple to the right field corner in the eighth inning. The Astros added an insurance run when he scored on a sacrifice fly by Dexter Fowler in the eighth. Chris Carter, who is third in the majors with 36 home runs, went 0 for 4 on Monday to snap a career-high 12-game hitting streak. TRAINERS ROOM Indians: OF Ryan Raburn missed a second straight game after leaving Saturdays game with a hyperextended left knee. Raburn travelled with the team to Houston, Francona said he might need to go back to Cleveland to be evaluated. "Hes still pretty tender, pretty sore," Francona said. "The fact that he came in and was still pretty tender we need to get him looked at." He said hed have more information on Tuesday. Astros: The team still hasnt decided if OF George Springer (left quadriceps strain) will play again this season. The rookie has been out since July 20. "If hes totally healthy then we have no problem (playing him), Lawless said. "To be over-cautious is probably better than to be under-cautious at this time." UP NEXT Houstons Nick Tropeano will make his second major league start against right-hander Corey Kluber in the second game of the four-game series. Tropeano allowed two runs in five innings to get the win in his debut on Wednesday.
