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.

It's okay, I think. 

 

I'm sure it'll be open to a new group of people on Game day anyway. 

 

No biggie.

That looks reasonable for Cam

He also might not want that 6th year. Looking down the road he may be able to get two decent pay days

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.
