Found February 28, 2014 on NFL Trade Rumors:
The Carolina Panthers announced that they have re-signed K Graham Gano to a four-year contract on Friday. Mike Garafolo reports that Gano will make $12.4 million total and receives a $4 million signing bonus. According to Garafolo, the contract also includes another $600,000 in escalators. “The special teams unit was a large part of our success last year, and we are excited to keep Graham as a part of our team,” HC Ron Rivera said in a release. “Graham has shown range and accuracy in his field goal kicking, and his strong leg has been a weapon for us on kickoffs.” Gano, 26, converted 24 of 27 (88.9%) of his field goal attempt for the Panthers last season. He also made all six of his attempts from 50 yards or more. Gano would have found a decent amount of interest for a kciker on the open market, so it makes sense for the Panthers to get him taken care of now.
