Him wanting to be here means little.....of course he wants to be here.

Stewart wants to get paid. That is the issue.

Even if we just so happened to be in cap hell when Newton's contract was about to expire, I 100% guarantee you a good portion of our team would be willing to restructure to make sure he remained.

And to be honest, I don't get the vibe that Newton is going to ask for THAT much money. I mean, he is going to get his, definitely. But with all of the sponsors he has, I don't think he'll be looking for as much as Peyton or Brees have/are.

Mass suicides would sweep across NC/SC if Panthers couldn't resign newton.

Facts:

  • Newton will get his long-term contract with the Panthers when the time comes
  • Neither Newton, nor Stewart, nor any other player is going to give a significant "home town discount". This is an overused phrase that does not reflect the reality of the business
  • MH has a plan. It may not be the plan everyone agrees with, but don't think he hasn't thought through all these scenarios
  • Otah's cap hit, whether we keep him or cut him, will have little impact on the team
  • DWill's and CJ's contracts were not front-loaded. Just because we paid a lot of cash up front, that does not make it front-loaded. The bonus is still spread out over the life of the contract. A front-loaded contract is characterized by high salaries in the early years, and lower salaries toward the end. Paying a big bonus up front affects cash flow for the owner, nothing more.

Didn't we offer Peppers the largest contract at that time and he just turned it down? (Or something close to it) It's not like we aren't willing to shell it out when it counts. Hopefully when it's time to renew Cam's contract we can make him the highest paid player in the league if things stay on track. Only worry would be Cam not wanting to be here and I don't see that happening.

Cam Newton will get his comtract from the Panthers. It will also be the biggest contract signed at the time, for a qb.

people need to stop worrying about cam getting paid.

I wouldn't be surprised if Dwill restructured his contract to keep Stewart

yeah hurney tried his ass off to keep peppers on this team. peppers/his agent destroyed his trade value with the poo they pulled (the mysterious list of four teams that he would be willing to accept a trade to, wanting to play a new position, refusing to sign his tender so he could be traded in the first place, etc.) and it irks me to this day when people try to bust hurney's balls over that scenario.

Hurney called Pep's bluff, and lost. It's that simple.
