Historically it has been assumed that we sign Cam to a lucrative extension as soon as the bargaining agreement allows it. I believe this would be at the end of this season, so around February?

 

With Gettleman here and Rivera potentially gone things could be a little different. I assume we would still keep sign a new contract, it just wouldn't be as big as we all thought unless he rebounds this year. I can't imagine we want him testing free agency no matter how he does. I can't recall the last time a franchise QB wasn't locked up ASAP.

 

Or do we let him ride out his contract before doing anything?

I cant see Newton in any position to demand some sort of huge salary if he plays out the rest of the season like he has started it.

Gettlemen will hire a HC....then after that.....we will find out Newton's fate.

I don't see a contract for Newton until after the new HC gets started. New HCs get their guy at QB....he may not want Newton.

do it while we have a losing record and right before a new coach is hired that turns this team around and knows how to get the most out of cam.

 

hopefully it's cheaper to do it that way.

I think it's a good time to ink him. He won't command elite money. He will get better.

Newton will still be off to historical offensive production 3 years into a NFL career....

Only thing he doesn't have is wins in the win column. Team sport. His offensive production is still at a historical pace....

That gets overlooked in the national media. They simply focus on the losses.....not why he has so few wins

I think Cam will wait. It wont be made public(or maybe it will), but I don't see him wanting to sign anything long term in such a shaky situation. The smart thing for both sides will be to wait. 

 

I personally think Cam IS the answer at QB, but I'm not sure Gettleman does. JR said Cam would be his last QB so it will be interesting to see what happens.

JR will not let Cam go....He loves him and hell I love him as a QB....we just need the right OC and HC for him....RR is not the answer and neither is Shula.....for sure not Shula....

It amazes me to see Harbaugh turn Kaepernick into 'The Greatest QB in the making..." (via Jaws and ESPN) yet Rivera and Shula don't know how to find exploit his gifts.
