Recommended Posts

Monday is the first day teams can begin to renegotiate or extend the rookie contract of a player drafted in 2011, and teams also could exercise a fifth-year option on that player. The Panthers likely are to begin those discussions after the season, according to a source.

Another good article by JJ. Talks about Drayton's and Byron's first impressions on Cam, Rivera bailing out Cam during rookie hazing too.

No way it's under 100 million

 

Wouldn't be shocking if it were 6 years $110m with a few playoff wins. That would make him around #6 highest paid. 

 

One and done and I'll stick with $15/year

Agreed.

 

Unless, they resign him to a new contract altogether, the Panthers can pay him at most $16 million a yr next year. 

 

If they want to resign him to a new multi-year contract, at or less than that amount, I think Cam waits. 

 

Why would he sign a new multi year contract for 6yrs at $90 million, when he could get a $120 million contract (for the same years), if not from the Panthers, from some one else?

 

Just look at some of the other new QB starting QB salaries, even ones who have not won a Superbowl.

Some serious talks will be had with Cam for sure....

 

GMan:  So you remember how bad it felt those first two years when we lost more than we won

 

Cam:  I do..I do...some of the hardest years of my life as a player

 

GMan:  We understand you did a lot this year with a few more weapons but nothing great other then smitty and olsen to throw to at this point. 

 

Cam:  True, but my Oline is makeshift at best with a few solid pieces.  Hell we have a DE playing on the line this year and starting.

 

GMan:  I understand.  So lets give you a good contract that allow us to better Oline, a WR on the free market or draft, and will give us a little wiggle room to resign Hardy.  That Def is pretty elite and man Im sure you feel better when we are in the lead and they have our backs.  (instead of saying man thank god that Def saved our asses half the year)

 

Cam:  True.  I had a nice long talk with MJ and to create a Dynasty you have to make changes.  I want to paid, I know im not elite yet at throwing but man i can do things no one else can.  Remember I got you a ring this year too.

 

GMan:  True.  Ok 16 million 6 years 40 million guaranteed.

 

Cam:  ok here, lets do 15 million 6 years 50 million guaranteed.

 

GMan:  ok done.  as he keep staring that new superbowl ring.

 

 

KEEP POUNDING!

i wasn't joking when i said this earlier last year.

 

I think Cam is going to surprise people and take less because he wants to win so bad.
