Contract Forecast: Cam Newton

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.

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
