Boston, Bene, and Norman are proof positive that 40 times can be overrated. All three guys had their draft stock hurt by their 40 times.
Pretty amazing that 3/4s of our secondary coming down the stretch (a secondary that played pretty damn well I might add) were 4.6 guys who were drafted in the 4th and 5th rounds, two of whom were rookies.
With Seattle’s Russell Wilson and Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck in line for record-breaking deals, Newton is content to let those negotiations reset the market for quarterbacks, according to two league sources.
Then, sources say, if the Panthers’ offer meets Newton’s expectations, he is interested in remaining with Carolina for the long-term.
Newton’s representatives are not interested in any deal resembling the one received by San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick last year. Kaepernick’s contract includes de-escalators that decrease his compensation by $2 million a year following any season in which the 49ers don’t make it to the Super Bowl or Kaepernick is not an All-Pro. Newton wants more guaranteed money, sources say.
Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman has said repeatedly he views Newton as his franchise quarterback. Gettleman declined to talk about Newton’s contract status last week at the combine.
That wasnt sumthin he just pulled outta nowhere. His flow changed up with the beat pretty seemlessly. Musta been a written he has in his arsenal, but regardless it was niice. 1 million x better than 90% of crap out there now
