Is Jstew stays here, he will add another 5+years to his NFL career. Any other team will give him the ball 1000 times a game and wear his body out fast.

You do know if Cam is on top when the next contract is due, the going rate will be around 25 million.

So it will not surprise me if Cam gets the first 150 Million dollar contract. 6yrs/150Million

Looks like Hurney has been trying to sign Stewart to an extension all along.

The Carolina Panthers have tried to sign RB Jonathan Stewart to a long-term contract extension this offseason but the two sides have not be able to reach an agreement. Stewart said he does hope to re-sign with the team before he becomes a free agent.

a big payday from a lower tier team like Cleveland or Jacksonville

it is amusing you chose those two teams to list as low tier teams spending big money on RBs, heh.

That is comparable to the hometown discount line....NFL players don't do that. Just like you wouldn't take a pay cut at your job

To compare taking a pay cut at the NFL level and blue collar level is apples to oranges. Read the Tolbert report? There is only so much money you can spend, most people understand that if you like where you are and are happy with the people you work with why change it? Don't get me wrong, there are players that would bolt for that extra million. Let them.

Oh, and I guarantee you DWill would restructure his contract to accommodate Jstew. I'd bet your left nut on it.

Not just blue collar.....white collar....any job. Tolbert didn't take less money so someone else could get it. Tolbert was looking out for Tolbert....putting himself in the best scenario for him and his family. That meant a paycut for the moment.

NFL players are looking out out for themselves...too often people spout of these guys doing x and y for the good of the team. Rarely happens.

DWill will do what benefits him and his family the most.....like 99% of players.

Im sure he wants to stay but I just dont see how the numbers will work out. He should be paid like a starting RB and he want get it here. Dwill's contract is unfortunate because Stewart is just as good and younger.

I love Stewart. But, if this team commits that much cap space in the RB position, it will be a HUGE long term mistake.

Agreed. So many needs in other areas. If they can't come up with a number that works and the Panthers can live with, trade him.
