What does your gut tell you? Does Cam get extended by Gettleman and co. sometime this off-season?

 

I think this may be Gettleman's number two priority (after extending Rivera) this off-season and since he has already done that, I think an extension for Ace Boogie may be in the works. In his interviews he has said that Cam is the guy and is our franchise QB and that he has unlimited potential at the quarterback position. That has to bode well for his future in Charlotte.

 

Anxious to see how things unfold.

It can wait, i think he is going to be busy with those 21 players not under contract.  I would say mid-way though next season at the soonest.

My gut tells me it's time for my sweet potato fries and baked chicken with texas pete.

 

And no, I don't think Cam is getting extended this season more because of cap issues rather than about him being a franchise QB. Teams will sn@tch him in a hurry if he hits the market.

 

LOL, I can't believe "sn.atch" is censored on here.

Yes Cam will get a long term contract this off season. If you see Hardy walk in FA in March. Be sure we will be signing Cam this off season for sure.

Yes. Go ahead and get one of the foundational contracts down on the books, so you can see what kind of cap space we'll be working with in future years to add parts.

No way they lame duck Cam and even chance it. I agree it's the second priority. So much of Cam's contract determines what we can do with our FA, and Hardy for that matter. We won't hear much from FA without first hearing about Cam.

If they don't extend Cam, the chances of extending him decrease rapidly next year. And if those odds decrease, the odds of me being much less of a Panthers fan increase. You can NOT let your best player go.

Cam isn't going anywhere regardless. I am fairly sure that G-man is in contact with Cam about his intentions. Sure they may not have discussed specifics at this point, but I believe that G-man has assured Cam that he is part of the greater plan, and those assurances give Cam a little security while other pats of the puzzle are being worked out. As an important part of the team and team building process, inasmuch as Cam wants to be here and wants to win, G-man has probably put some onus on Cam to be as patient and fair as humanly possible so that at the end of the day all parties involved can be happy with themselves (i.e., what they are earning for a certain length of time), and do what's best for the team (and what we're trying to do here).

He said in his interview yesterday that they've begun process and that extending Cam was a priority.

Yes, they have to.


He's only played 3 years. He could play 4 more without getting a new contract.

Cam is still under contract for next season, and 2015 if they decide to pick up his 5th year option. After that they can even franchise tag him the next two years.

Even if Cam wanted out he could technically be stuck here until the summer of 2018.

No he didn't. Dave said he & his staff are crunching numbers & looking at their options. As in whether they want to try & extend him now or pick up his 5th year Orion & leave him on his rookie call to save money. He isn't in contract negotiations with Cam.
