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

I hope he's more like Rodgers than Brees. Rodgers took a cap friendly deal, Brees demanded a deal that handicapped the team. While his contract shouldn't' be the same as either of those, I hope the structure is friendly.

this would be a fuging steal

maybe. I'm no salary expert... I don't see cam as the type to hold out for a monster payday. I also imagine there'll be a significant amount of incentives and escalators worked in as well

In fairness, you have to think his contract will reflect how UNDERpaid he has been as well. Newton has been the biggest bargain in our history......we pay peanuts for his production currently.

I don't think that three games alone should make Cam deserving of a huge payday.

Being the top rusher two of the three years here really does help his cause. Not to mention he scores more rushing TD's than our RB's too.

He's been the best RB and QB on our roster for three years, two of which our offensive scheme was "go make something happen Cam ty".


Hopefully he doesn't kill us but if he wants he's going to get fuging paid.

Hoping that he values winning more than an extra million or two each year.  If he really is

so devoted to winning, then he should realize that leaving some money on the table makes that

more possible.  And a Super Bowl win will bring far more money in endorsements.  It's win win for him

to take less.


but if ego about being the highest paid QB, etc is a factor....

I read an article about this recently. 


It basically said that no one really knows what to do with Cam's contract. He didn't get the stupid paydays that Bradford and his ilk did.


So does he get that money in his first "real" contract or is his first deal based off the rookie deal?   I think its the former. We'll see.

Cam knows what losing feels like....ie the first two seasons with us....he wants to win....He won't take a huge contract.  He had plenty of money coming in from other avenues...he'll take around 12-15 mil so we can bring in other players to make him better.  He's young and despite W-L record, he's done really well.  Think if any other QB had this OL.....Cam has done a lot with what he has to this point.  things are starting to turn and Cam does not want to spur that growth.  KEEP POUNDING!!!!!!

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.
