What will Cam do
Posted 22 January 2014 - 05:23 PM
25-24 as a starter. Not worth top tier money. Not even close.

This kind of Cam contract talk is absurd.
Panthers have a lot more leverage than Cam does.
If they cant do a deal this year, they option for the 5th year on his rookie deal... and they still have 2 more years of Franchise Tag beyond that.
You do realize that the exclusive Franchise Tag means you are required to pay that player the average of the top 5 players in the league at that position.
In other words, placing the exclusive Franchise Tag on Cam would mean you would easily be paying him $20 million plus that year. And (according to you) the year after that.
So why wouldn't you just sign him long term at $20 million instead of exclusive Franchising him at more than $20 million for two years and then letting him walk?
In other words, the team doesn't have as much leverage as you seem to think. Actually, as one of the most exciting players in the league (and only getting better), a franchise QB, and the face of the franchise, Cam has more leverage than the team IMO.

Most of you are fixated on price and money! I think what players are out around him matters just as much, he has had NO help, the past three years he has carried this offense on his own and partly by rejuvenating smitty, pay him all day but he wants to win, he will be held back from doing so without the pieces around him and I think that will be the decisive factor not money.

Other than 12mil being on the low side, I agree on this. Cam and that SF qb, are going to set the bar for the new era of QB. But, to me, they have not yet risen to that 20mil group. So it should be close to 15mil. Other than that, I have no clue.
How long of a contract is Cam happy with? He got shorted his first one, and still made 20mil. If he takes a shorter deal, he may get 2 big deals. If he takes a longer deal, he may only get 1 big deal. I say...make him give us a home team discount, cuz he makes plenty of money in endorsements he is able and willing to give us a "for the good of the team" deal. That way, we get our QB for evs cuz he loves us, and wants us to be happy, so he always signs fair contracts.
Yep, I said two posts later that I hit the 6 years rather than 5. My math was for 15Million per year.

Money talks. If he doesn't get a contract/treatment befitting his status as the top young QB in the league.......he will end up with a big blue star on his silver helmet in a couple of seasons. Just saying. That skeletor looking dude in Texas throws money at everybody; and in a season or two Romo won't be a Cowboy anymore.
LOL "That skeletor looking dude in Texas" Too funny.

You people thinking Cam's deal won't eclipse 100 million are cute....
The one using the teams record to say why Cam shouldn't get paid like a franchise QB is fuging hilarious tho.....
Seriously look at matt stafford. His record is horrible and he still gets treated like a franchise player.

Not to derail thread, but with the money QBs are making nowadays, who is going to be the first team to have a killer D and running game, and just keep drafting game managers every 4 years?
