Will these last three games make Newton a bunch of money?

Anyone who thinks Cam isn't going to get a monster deal hasn't been paying much attention to the money QBs are getting these days.

He won't be getting a new contract this off season.

So the answer is no.

 

And we can always take a 5th year option.

Put his contract in perspective, if the team uses the 5th year option then he has two years worth roughly 18 million with a cap hit of around 7 million in 2014 and 15 million in 2015. If he gets an extension it's going to be more then the 5th year option per season easily, so your starting negotiations at around 16 million a season. 

 

He's not going to take less then that 5th year option is worth cause he's already worth that and knows it. If the team has too, they will use it to keep him in Carolina longer. 

 

 

All things considered and what he's been worth to the team, I'd say your looking at a contract worth 111 million over 6 years at 18.5 a season on average. 

 

That's the type of money Cam is going to command.

I thought I read somewhere that because of the new salary structure for draft picks.......

 

the CBA dictated the salaries of the top few picks in their second contract.

 

And that Cam's would start no less than 15 mil.

 

Did I hear or read this wrong ??

Cam is our franchise QB,young, with a bright future that has unlimited upside, so expect us to pay him what the market demands,which will be a very steep amount.

I just love how people want to see Cam get a record setting contract, yet they want the team to spend big money to put more weapons around him.

 

Something has to give.

That would be a terrible idea

Why wouldn't we lock him up?

we'll lock him up. Just no reason to do this offseason.

Well if we don't then he is a free agent after the 2014 season. He will then take all suitors unless we franchise him (which players hate) at which point he will then be a free agent again taking all suitors and we have no leverage.

 

This is effectively our last chance to keep him with no other offers

we have all the leverage for at least two more years. Even three.

The team has an option to add another year to his current contract, without any negotiating.

That gives us another two full years without using the franchise tag, which is always an option.

We have PLENTY of time.

Panthers control this.

compared to paying him even more money when it's not necessary?

Whatever you say...

Lol
