Cam might get released in offseason

Recommended Posts

Realistic view.  If Cam gets his surgery... he will likely miss 1-2 seasons.  Means he will be around 32 years old and out of contract with the Panthers.

Cam Newton projected to earn around $45M over next 2 years. Cam Newton contract was built to make him expandable after 2018.  His contract carries only $8.5M in dead money so if Panthers make him post June 1st cut, they can save $18M in cap in both 2019 and 2020. (Cam dead money hit was $30M in 2018).

Now, getting a shoulder surgery for Cam this offseason will be a disaster as he is out of contract in 2 years and will be almost 32 years old.  Surgery this offseason can potentially cost Cam around $100M.  Cam best option will be not to get surgery and try to get a new contract somewhere else with as much guaranteed money as possible.

Nah bro. Getting a healthy Cam Newton is worth investing for. His arm at 100% is probably the biggest cannon in football. He's also the biggest and most in shape QB there is. He'll be able to play for a long time. We just need make sure have the right coaches to keep him sharp.

he's not gonna miss 1-2 seasons lol

So do you pay QB $45M who might never play for you if he gets a surgery?  Do you pay QB $45M who might not get a surgery but will have shoulder issues and struggles to throw?

Shoulder issues are tricky.  He might never been 100% ever again.
