“I’m sure the Carolina Panthers will go, ‘Hey, we’ll give you Kaepernick’s structure,’ ” said Joel Corry, a former NFL agent. “But (Newton’s agent) Bus Cook is not going to be too receptive to that.”
 
Newton, selected No. 1 overall in the 2011 draft in which Kaepernick was picked in the second round, is entering the fourth year of his rookie deal. In April, the Panthers picked up the club option on Newton for 2015 at $14.67 million.
 
But with such a prohibitive salary cap number for Newton for 2015, Corry believes the Panthers will lock up their franchise quarterback with a long-term deal before the start of the league year next March.
 
And Corry, who writes about NFL contracts and the salary cap for CBS Sports and the National Football Post, thinks it will be Jay Cutler’s contract – more so than Kaepernick’s – that Newton’s side will bring to the table.

Cutler, 31, the 11th overall pick in 2006, didn’t receive a signing bonus from the Bears. But the first three years of the deal are guaranteed for $54 million – an average of $18 million a year that Corry believes Newton will command.
 
“I think $18 million (a year) gets you in the game for Cam, with $50 million in guarantees,” Corry said.

 

 

 
7 years at 18M for Cutler. I have always said 5x19 but 7x18 with a similar guarantee sounds right.  A true guarantee not a Kaepernick "we can cut you anytime" guarantee. Hopefully.
 
Sorry if posted already

anything south of 20 would be beneficial to the franchise.  but an even more stellar year this year, it would certainly push north of that number.

I don't think Cam will get a CK's deal. I think Cam deserves a little more faith in his play anyway. He's proven he's a better QB.

I don't know the structure, all I know is when Cam gets his new contract, ESPN will be talking about him being one of the highest paid players ever in the NFL. Thats a guarantee.

I haven't been watching any ESPN or NFLN to know what they are saying about the CK deal, but when Cam gets his I'm sure they will be saying something like "well now he has to prove himself."

I can see it now:

 

 

 

" Now let's see the leadership..."

 

" We just need to see him mature..."

I don't think $18 million per year will get it done. He's already set to make nearly $15 million on the fifth year option.

18 or 20 or even 23 are just numbers.  You can make the numbers whatever you want but what matters is what is guaranteed.  Players take contracts because they get 50 million guaranteed which assures they will never be hurting for money the rest of their lives.  Kaepernick's deal doesn't give him much security and I suspect he will see less than 70% of it.

I remember noting this when I saw Cutler listed as a Bus Cook as well, so it makes sense.

As a side note, I think Cutler is overpaid.

 

A lot of Bears fans (and probably some players) might rather have had Josh McCown back.

Doesn't matter.

 

Clausen probably ends up starting.

There is no question he is.
