When the time comes, will Cam Newton be the highest paid QB in the game?

42 posts in this topic

I could see him getting a Jay Cutler type deal maybe. He signed a 5 year 49mil deal w/ 20 guaranteed.

But of course as usual...WAY early for this.

Cam is gonna want more than that, his rookie contract was pretty much nothing compared to other QB's gone first overall, I could see 60-70 million, with 35 guaranteed.

Sam Bradford's deal less than two years ago was six-year, $78 million contract with $50 million in guaranteed money... Cam's current deal is four year 22 mill guaranteed. IMO he has ALREADY outperformed his rookie contract

we'll see. It's so early that this talk is really silly, because we have no idea how is going to perform.

Bradford's deal means nothing, and unless he steps it up this year, he'll never see another deal like that again.

hope not. hopefully he is so incredibly rich from his endorsements that he doesn't need to suck us dry so we can still go out and get a great team to put around his ass.

When the cap takes a huge jump in 2014, contracts will as well. If Newton is seen as a top 5 guy at that point he will get 20-23 million a year. We could see more like a 6 year 130 million contract with 60 million guaranteed. Still way too early to say though.

With this guy shattering and breaking many major rookie QB records, if all does is continue to improve I find it hard for him to not become the highest QB in the game. I think if by next year he continues to produce monster records then his four year 22 million deal would need to be redone since he has already outperformed that

I dont agree with the early raise based on the outperforming the contract theory.

When NFL players suck they never give money back. If Cam continues to perform and improve we're lucky to enjoy the first Rookie Cap #1 pick contract in league history. Maybe after the 3rd year look at extending or during the final year of his contract. If he wants to stay in Carolina he'll sign then, otherwise it will be the Franchise tag etc, etc, etc.

And was a ridiculously high number to pay a rookie when they could easily be Jamarcuss Russell or Ryan Leaf.

The new CBA cured this problem, rokie players must now earn massive contracts.

Get to work Cam. We all want to see him succeed, win playoff games and reap the rewards on and off the field.
