That's not my point though, the point is that we still need enough cap for a long-term deal for Cam when that time arises. Not many players play under the tag. I'm sure JR and Hurney are gonna want to sign cam to a BIG long-term deal.


JR and Hurney are cap "gods" there is no reason to worry about something that is still a little ways down the road.

They will figure something out.

i'm confident they'll get it worked out.

I believe Stewart does want to remain here.
why wouldn't he?

I also believe the Panthers want to keep him.
I'm not even going to worry about it this season.

I believe they'll find a way to get it done.

I read what you wrote and think breezing2anothersb.

It's not worth worrying about. Either it will get done or it won't. Either way, Cam won't be going anywhere if he continues to shine.

I think Stew will stay. Assuming Otah doesn't pan out this year, we will be free from his cap hits. I could see Dwill restructuring his contract (I believe the majority of his contract was front loaded anyway). Gross would also probably restructure.

At this point we have plenty of star power on this team and letting them go into FA so we can replace them with other FAs is just silly. There are too many factors involved when relying on incoming FAs and it completely goes against Rivera's philosophies of forcing players to work for their spots (any high priced FA is going to practically be handed their spot). Also with our FA history, even the good pickups only last for 2-3 years.

Keep drafting to find star players, trade the ones we don't need, use FA to fill in the gaps.

Lol, well he has a bunch of poo to worry about, that organization is spiraling downwards fast.

In regards to Cam's contract, you gotta remember that some of our higher paid players just won't be competing at the same level they are now, or when they got their contract. Smith will be like 35, Gross will def be on the decline and his massive contract will probably be up, Beason will be at an age where asking him to take a little less probably won't be an issue, Gamble will be getting up there.

Even with all that, Cam's contract will cause some casualties. If all goes the way it should, he'll probably be the highest paid player in NFL history.

the problem with them is that that particular organization has shown a total disregard for the rules and has done whatever it can to circumvent them. the panthers FO is a lot more responsible, even with their supposed irrational and irresponsible signings last year. call it being naive, but i think they have a clue what they're doing.

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.
