Cam Newton to have "private meeting" with J.R.

Rookie salaries are going to be reduced based on the new CBA, therefore the prestige of being the #1 pick would not be enough for me to accept a rookie QB job in Carolina. Carolina hasn't developed 1 rookie QB in 14 years and after watching what happened to Clausen, Newton should really think twice about pushing for the #1 pick.
Based on the new rookie salaries, the #1 pick has lost alot of it's significance. If I were Cam I would be doing the interviewing at this point...it's his career at stake and we all know what happens when a rookie QB enters a bad QB situation.....

Hurney actually has a long term sense of the draft and doesn't draft for immediate impact. Don't know what he will do but if JR likes him I could see us pulling the trigger.

Or could just be he is meeting with top picks but everyone else is blowing things out of proportion.
