Seriously, what the hell is taking so long to sign Cam.

I figured Cam would be one of the first signed with the new rookie cap. Since there's still an, albeit small, amount of negotiation possible, maybe the Panthers aren't wanting to pay him the maximum contract?

even w/ the new rookie wage scale.....Cam is the first QB taken #1 overall. That still isn't an easy one to do. People will be using this deal for comparison down the road.

the debate is whether or not to have all his money guaranteed. even if it is, it's less than half of what was guaranteed to guys like bradshaw.

i really don't think that newton will miss any practice or meeting time with the team.

Yeah, I read that somewhere too.

Well, contract negotiations can be prickly. Newton's contract is going to be the first of it's kind. We'll have to see what happens.

Start out like what?

He's going to be the first overall pick affected by the Rookie salary cap. It's got to be a tough thing to put into paper. Any way it goes, he's going to get the shaft compared to contracts in the past. I'm sure they want to make sure he gets treated well, and are having some issues ironing out the details.

No big deal as long as he's at camp. Did he show today?

Now... if he doesn't show for camp... then it's a problem.

    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
    • Didn't zeke take a lot of runs out of shotgun at Ohio state?? I didn't pay much attention to him when he was there but you really wouldnt have noticed last year that he wasn't use to running off of normal run hand off plays.
    • Might wanna check the numbers and see how Fournette did against Bama too.
