Cam's Contract

43 posts in this topic

No way to know what it will look like till we get a new GM and how he performs next year. Next year is essentially a contract year for Cam.

I would like to know:

a) when most huddlers think we begin to negotiate with him

B) what his contract looks like in terms of dollars (probably hard to say) and more importantly length.

I was thinking about this last night, and I think it's important that the organization starts to negotiate as soon as possible.

His current deal is 4 years with a team option for a 5th.So if we can't start talks until the end of next season that would give us a max two-year window to get something done.

Dude........there's way more important things to be taken care of before Cam.

He's under contract and isn't going anywhere ( like some on here believe).

The bad news is that he's gonna get the biggest contract in NFL history without question, especially with Richardson as the owner doling out the millions to anybody who we drafted.

The good news is that it's really gonna screw over any other team with a young QB. lol Indy.

Then we will continue to struggle. 1-18 when Cam turns the ball over proves he needs help for us to win.

We have been in EVERY game except for a couple bc of him.

What we don't need to do is give fat deals to positions that are easy to fill and to multiple guys at those spots

You are right and the help should come from the rest of the team stepping up instead of standing around waiting for Cam to do it all.

Just image, the Colts 10-5 despite Luck turning the ball over 18 times, and the Bengals 9-6 despite Andy turning the ball over 13 times. Cam has turned the ball over 11 times so far, so why isn't this team in the play-offs?

because overall the team itself sucks and has been sucking since 2009.

Whoever said Cam didn't need help? In the majority of those 1-18 games we lost due to one player or coach having a derp moment. Of course Cam needs help, football is "the ultimate team sport".

IMO, instead of worrying about "locking Cam down" with money, shouldn't you be more willing to demand Mr. Richardson give him the necessary tools, in the form of disciplined players, to help this team win and be competitive so he would want to stick around. When it comes to some folks, money isn't everything. Winning and the ultimate prize of getting SB trophies is. Didn't Stevie prove that to you guys not to long ago when he was demanding to be traded? Something tells me Cam shares Stevies passion for winning more than the love of money.

This sounds nice in theory, but when Team A offers you $8 million per year and Team B offers you $18 million per year, and both teams promise to surround you with quality players, where are you gonna go?

This team doesn't "suck." Teams that sucks get blown out week in and out. This team simply lacked the discipline needed to hold on and win. And, that usually comes from not winning much. When a team wins a lot, they know what it feels like and turn to that energy to push them over the hump. This team hasn't been successfully winning for quite sometime. And I'm sure those who were on part of the SB team are mostly gone, so there isn't passion and drive isn't there.

Take a look at the Texans. How long did it take them to get to where they're at now? They are playing way better than they did just two years ago.Give it time. With discipline, passion, and good coaching team, the Panthers can be the Texans in a year or two.

You're going to stick with the team who has the real track-record of winning and who you have built a real brotherhood with. Think about it? What makes QBs leave from one team to another? They are not the same as receivers, who are more like a dime a dozen. Any team know they have a good QB is going to want to build around them. If a QB is on a team for three years and the the team isn't helping hime, all the money in the world isn't going to make him want to stay. Remember Carson Palmer? He simply hated the Bengals and wanted out. Who knows, maybe it was that mindset that cause them to have such a couple of bad seasons. Once they granted him his wish and put Andy in his place look what happened.

You never want a unhappy QB on your team. And the best way to keep him happy is to give him the people he needs to help him help the team win. Money alone will not do it.
