Contract Forecast: Cam Newton

A breakdown of what Cam's contract could be. Gettleman has his work cut out for him wowzerz.....

 

 

He's got 11,603 yards, and 79 touchdowns through 41 games in his young career - but with just 19 wins, the measure on where Carolina Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton stands in terms of status is tough to gauge. The Panther's have quietly become a contender in 2013, in large part to the consistently strong play from Newton, and with his $22 million contract set to expire after 2014, the discussions regarding an extension are forthcoming.

Our forecast for Cam will be unlike any we've done prior, as his unique skill set lends itself to varying evaluation methods. Newton will be the first of the current generation of "young mobile quarterbacks" to be granted a long-term contract. Not since Michael Vick in 2004 has a quarterback with the ability to pass and throw at an elite level been considered for a maximum pay-day, and the game has changed immensely since.

To compensate for this, we'll revise the statistics used in our analysis to include Rushing Yards, and Total Touchdowns (Passing + Throwing). Additionally, we'll take a look at the Top 10 rushing quarterbacks since 2011 to find where Cam falls solely based on his run game.

The following is the full report, predicting the next contract for the 24 year old Panthers' quarterback.

I truly believe Cam's desire to win will show up here. I don't think Cam will demand the kind of contract that will set this franchise back (ex. Flacco)

Most athletes get that one big contract during there career and must cash in on it. I think Cam is in a slightly different position since he is a very marketable athlete, and is capable of making money other ways as well (Under Armour).

Time will tell.

he knows winning brings more endorsements, so I'm hoping he'll take a reasonable stand to keep the team viable.

An interesting fact is that the players with the highest salary-cap figures don't necessarily have the highest salaries in a given year. Bonus money, incentives and proration of previous bonuses all play into a "cap number."

Cam's agent, whose pay is directly tied to the amount of money he can get for Cam, has all the leverage in this situation.  Contracts are growing, Cam is improving, comparable QBs are making 100m+, we are winning, and there are at least 15 teams who would all pay Cam the max, hopefully this is settled quickly.

I wouldn't have a problem with something in the 16-18 a year range if he keeps playing well.

I read an article saying that people inside the league don't think post rookie cap players are going to get the mega deals that players of recent years have on their second contract.

I don't know what he's going to get. It should be a good bit. He' a QB and a great one. But based on that information I don't expect a massive deal like what Atlanta gave Ryan (which Ryan isnt worth to begin with)


The positive of the flip side, if we do set the precedent and give him an enormous contract, we can troll the rest of the league for decades hahahahahahaha.

They can give him a huge deal without a huge amount of guaranteed money and simply extend it every few years to gain cap space via restructuring with signing bonuses.

Sign him to a deal longer than 6 years so he doesn't come back and break our backs at that point or leave.... the window to compete will be as long as he's under contract more or less. Lets get him done for 8-10 years, give him a bit longer security in years for a break on the dollar amount

I can live with the contract they projected. Hopefully it's around that number.

Nothing more tedious than thinking about contracts and salary caps in the middle of an enjoyable, promising season.

It will certainly be interesting. And this point is one of the reasons I think we should extend Cam this off season and not give Luck, RG3, and Wilson the opportunity to set the market and blow it out of the water.

6 for $90M has been my guess

$17m per year is fine by me. i think he'll outplay that figure by a wide margin by the time it's all said and done with

He'll get over $100M.            Wins are a team effort.     

 

Ryan used to win and got a $100M contract because of it,  despite the fact that his individual stats,  were average in all but one,  maybe two of his years in the league. 

 

Cam has been an ongoing blockbuster event...  win or lose,  he will still put up career numbers that,  barring injury,  will make people start debating,  8+ years from now if he's HOF worthy.

Pay him. I know our defense is good enough to win us a good number of games but I can't deal with a Foxy 2.0 team. Run run run punt. Rinse. Repeat.
