Right. Cam hasn't shown anything except for that time he had arguably the best rookie season by a NFL player ever.

and that alone means he should be the highest paid ever before he even finishes his rookie contract?

Top tier players on the backside of their career will take less to try to get a ring.

The rest? They generally follow the money and/or do what is best for their family.

Is there a quote that says "CAM SHOULD BE THE HIGHEST PAID PLAYER EVER BEFORE HE FINISHES HIS ROOKIE CONTRACT"?

Because I missed that one. I'm just saying when the time comes for a new contract, I think it'll be the biggest one ever...until the season after when RG3 and Luck get bigger or equal one.

Too soon for this thread...pretty bad homers posting stupid poo...

Cam hasn't shown anything more than potential at this point. Once he has a playoff appearance under his belt, some solid 4th quarter comebacks, ability to win even when he turns over the ball...then a new contract will be discussed. Until then there is no guarantee he'll even be in Carolina beyond his rookie deal.

Cam has produced more offense than any player in NFL history through his first two seasons. Yards and TDs....no one has put up more offense as an individual.

4th q comebacks, game winning drives....often is a cloudy event. One that often has the QB getting plenty of help that then gets ignored after the fact. For example, how often has Cam gotten the ball back with no timeouts and a couple seconds on the clock and asked to drive the length of the field to score a game winning TD? Several.....guys who pull of comebacks aren't in rediculously shitty scenarios. Reality is they find themselves in situations like Andy Dalton did against Pitt last week

We know the deal isn't getting now or in the near future as in not before the end of his third year at the earliest. So lets see where he is at that point. If we have just come off of a playoff run then we are going to pay him and lock him for years to come hopefully with a huge signing bonus and small salaries for a couple of years so it works for the salary cap. If he didn't take us to the playoffs,we have to take a hard look at how good his intangibles are. Winning in the clutch making big plays when the pressure is on. Things Jake could do with half his talent. Imagine what we would have if Cam had Jake's ability to win on the big stage along with Newton's physicality to make the plays that Jake tried to make but didn't have the arm.

I have no doubt that he'll be the highest paid player in NFL history on his next contract, either here in Carolina or somewhere else. He's going to get a stupid amount of money. 5-6 years averaging about 23-25 million a season. lol...

Would think it might be between 7 and 10 years to be honest.

I'm not too concerned about 4th quarter comebacks. Aaron Rogers is terrible at 4th Q comebacks, but nobody knows or cares anymore.
