Seems good to me.

In advising its player reps on rookie pool, NFLPA projected Cam Newton would get $22M over 4 yrs and, another $14.3M in a 5th-year option...

But with that 5th yr being an avg of top 5 salaries at his position, it can only be an estimate for now. So they estimate $36.3 over 5 years


carolinagrowl Steve Reed
NFL.com reporting Newton's contract could be worth $36.3 over five years. which pales in comparison to Sam Bradford's $80 million last year.

I agree, but it's a step in the right direction.

A bunch of money, but nothing compared to what it was or the direction it was headed.

I don't know if the system will work, its still a rookie pool. Rookies can still negotiate a better deal. There's just a cap on the total amount of money that teams have to spend on Rookies. The big question is did owners and players limit option bonuses that rookies can get as that's what ruined the last rookie pool.

Yup, still a lot of money but works out perfect for us considering what it could have been, especially for an unproven NFL player.

Rookies can not negotiate another deal, nor the team until the 3rd year of contract.

We will certainly know what we have in year 3, so the option should never be used.

By the option year, he will be extended, traded, or cut.

Beats the fug out of the 80 he was going to get. I think he'll be worth the 20.

Wishing he was locked up longer and I still say it is not a positive but oh well.

If he is the real deal under the old rules he would be a bargain until the last year of the contract. If he ends up being the real deal now, he gets his 100 million dollars from somewhere and a 10 year deal at age 25 or 26 rather than still being under control for 3 more years by us.
