Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is desperate to not play games with his franchise as he admitted today that he will not seek a holdout. 

Newton is a prized asset for the Panthers and he is finally able to get himself an extended contract, but he says he's not going to force Carolina's hand. 

The Panthers have already made it clear that Newton will be their franchise NFL QB for the long-term, so it's only a matter of time before he gets an improved deal.

Even though there’s nothing on the table as yet, Newton just wants to work hard and let things take care of themselves. 

Newton appeared on the Dan Patrick Show today and said there was no chance he’d hold out on the Panthers, with his focus firmly on keeping harmony with the team. 

“I’m not worried about contract discussions right now. My main focus is just becoming the better player I can become," said Newton

Newton is due $3.378 million in 2014, the final year of his contract, but it would be surprising if he doesn't get another deal soon, with his price tag set to rocket if delays continue.
