We are not, and can not be in negotiation with Cam Newton about a possible contract. If we engaged in this action the NFL would have to immediately open up free agency and "start the football year." If the NFL was to do that it would be for all 32 teams not just the team with the top pick.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6442393

Quote:

"Two NFL general managers told Paolantonio on Thursday morning that all transactions (free agent signings, player trades) are still on hold. Most important there are no negotiations with potential draft picks. The Carolina Panthers, who own the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, which begins Thursday night (8 p.m. ET, ESPN), cannot contact any of the possible top picks."

If this changes it will be public 2 seconds after the Panthers get the news.

Come on yall!!!

I didn't think contracts would be negotiated until there is a CBA? Why would we be working on a deal similar to Bradfords if the ownership is counting on a Rookie salary cap?

I have to call BS on this one!

Had we not gotten stupid last season with AE we would be in GREAT draft position this year.

Instead we are literally fuged into taking Newton.

But but... Hurney said that AE was going to be a great WR? You must have not got the memo...

Even if the league were to allow player trades at the last minute, teams would be foolish to accept a player prior to a team doctor physical. You NEVER know what you're getting without this info.

Most player trades are pending until after the physical.

But if they do the 27 to 5 one that's been rumored, they're pretty much doing a Ricky Williams like deal.

that would be GREAT news for us.. Falcons offense is fine, it's their defense that got absolutely crushed by Green Bay.

Time to pull a Al Davis and just draft a Kicker in the first. Save Richardson alot of cash.
