That's fair. But since it seems to me to be an "action" shot, couldn't that just be a guy who was pointing at the camera, a previous pic had just been shot (or he didn't know that camera man was fixin' to take the shot), and he was drawing his pointed finger back into a fist? As a professional photographer, is that an explanation beyond that bounds of reason? Maybe I'm just the kind of guy who tries to rationalize the innocent explanation rather than the guilty, I dunno.
One thing I've noticed about Cam since ever since 2010 is that he's kept himself far away from trouble off the field. So whatever this pic is (which I have no idea), it is almost certainly something uncontroversial (unless someone creates a controversy out of it) and he is deserving of any benefit of doubt.
Because it would have had to been at least a 4 years contract in the area of $64 million dollars (probaby around $30 to $32 million guaranteed). Doing that would have eliminated signing Cam to a long term extension. Ask yourself which of the two contracts the Carolina Panthers would have likely been more interested getting done.
