You dont need to be Ben Benanke to understand the gist of a contracts affect on the salary cap. They are going to pay Newton and that's a given. We can only hope that in 5 years we dont look back and regret it. I dont think we will.
As long as you're not the one having to pay it, what difference does it make what Cam makes? He and Luke ARE this franchise. Not one person in this thread understands the salary cap enough to know what impact such a hypothetical contract would have on it. And you can count on Cam to be worth every penny he gets unlike some other guys we've signed and resigned to massive contracts.
