Contract Forecast: Cam Newton

16 November 2013 - 10:55 AM

A breakdown of what Cam's contract could be. Gettleman has his work cut out for him wowzerz.....



He's got 11,603 yards, and 79 touchdowns through 41 games in his young career - but with just 19 wins, the measure on where Carolina Panthers' quarterback Cam Newton stands in terms of status is tough to gauge. The Panther's have quietly become a contender in 2013, in large part to the consistently strong play from Newton, and with his $22 million contract set to expire after 2014, the discussions regarding an extension are forthcoming.

Our forecast for Cam will be unlike any we've done prior, as his unique skill set lends itself to varying evaluation methods. Newton will be the first of the current generation of "young mobile quarterbacks" to be granted a long-term contract. Not since Michael Vick in 2004 has a quarterback with the ability to pass and throw at an elite level been considered for a maximum pay-day, and the game has changed immensely since.

To compensate for this, we'll revise the statistics used in our analysis to include Rushing Yards, and Total Touchdowns (Passing + Throwing). Additionally, we'll take a look at the Top 10 rushing quarterbacks since 2011 to find where Cam falls solely based on his run game.

The following is the full report, predicting the next contract for the 24 year old Panthers' quarterback.



Don Banks Panthers Article: "Waiting Is the Smartest Part"

13 November 2013 - 03:31 PM

Pretty good read about the perseverance of Gettleman & Rivera.



It both pleases and surprises me to report that patience was the league’s biggest winner in Week 10, and that’s a refreshing rarity in the over-reactionary NFL. In today’s game, the willingness to wait for it has gone the way of the run-centric offense, but score one for resolve and persistence in Carolina.

The face of the Panthers’ perseverance is of course Ron Rivera. His Panthers are on the ascent at 6-3, in line for at least an NFC wild-card berth (and maybe considerably more), and he’s suddenly viewed as a legitimate coach of the year candidate rather than a dead man walking. See what a five-game winning streak can do for a guy?

I like it when the script gets flipped and we re-learn the value of not rushing to judgment. (And yes, I do see the irony of that statement coming from someone who writes the Snap Judgments column every NFL Sunday for SI.com). Go back and see what everyone was saying about Rivera five weeks ago, when the Panthers started 1-3 and were on the cusp of eliminating themselves from contention in the NFC South before Halloween for the third consecutive year. There was an NFL Network report, denied vehemently by the team, that Carolina was already doing background checks on potential new coaches. Everyone seemingly was preparing Rivera’s coaching obituary in Carolina, and thinking he was about to meet the same fate longtime Panthers general manager Marty Hurney met last fall: “Thank you for your service, now turn in your key card and surrender your parking spot.’’
