Here the breakdown via Twitter:
Hinted he will use option on Cam for fifth year...work on long term deal
Noncommittal on Godfrey
No comment on Hardys long term deal
89 was a football decision....compared it to Babe Ruth being cut
Happy with FA so far and long term prospects for team

That's about it in a nutshell

Not coming to terms with Cam this offseason will be a big mistake.

Why is FOX Sports saying that it'll be tougher to keep him if we put it off til next year? That's not a rhetorical question. I'm really asking.

What???  He neglected to apologize to huddlers for placing fear in our hearts?  You are going to tell me that he not once mentioned that he came to these forums for advice on how to run the team??? Who does this clown think he is??

 

FUG DG!!!!  HE HATES THE PANTHERS!!

Wouldn't pay him until next season anyway. It's an extension, not a new deal, so this year's amount stays the same whether we pay him today or next off-season.

A. They don't know Cam
B. There's an option for us to keep him into year 5
C. Coming off ankle surgery I think it's prudent to wait
D. With Gross and Smith out, the locker room is his, what will he do with it?

I think it's very smart to not sign Cam now, evaluate beyond this season and continue to fix the cap.

He'll have more leverage.  Right now, he has a major incentive to get a long-term deal done because he knows he'll get a lot more money via a long-term deal than by playing out his contract via the team option.  If we utilize the option, then the only way we have of definitely not letting him walk would be to use the franchise tag which is a cap killer for a QB.

Because more people will click on a story that might imply that one of the most exciting players in the League will eventually become a Free Agent.

I saw something about him saying Bell was a better fit at left tackle, although I can't confirm that was said.

This year Cam will reach uncharted territory.. This will truly be his team and his locker room.  I think he's ready

So basically, you're in agreement with me that this could end in disaster for the Panthers.
