CMC's Potential New Contract - Discussion

Recommended Posts

With Luke and potentially Cam being gone next year, CMC is our franchise player. He is a captain and leader of this team. To me it’s a no brainer...

His contracts going to be ridiculous.  

 

6 years 102m with incentives to make it 110m total.  35m fully guaranteed,  with another 20m in other guarantees. Total money, guaranteed money, yearly average will definitely be over Elliott's 90m, 50m guaranteed,  28m fully guaranteed and 15m average. Could even come close to Thomas deal in NO, 20m per season. 

 

Just brace yourself cause this ones gonna be nuts.

Not saying we are. I think we're dumb if we do. Just playing devil's advocate and singing CMC's praises for being so versatile. To lose him would hurt, but not be the death of the team.

How would we potentially lose him?

I’d like to know if he is open to converting fully to receiver.  This seems like it could make sense for both parties. Receivers get paid more, have longer careers on average, and suffer less wear and tear. We could still run him out of backfield say a handful of times per game, creating all kinds of matchup problems for opponents and unorthodox gadget play options for us.

Better to let his contract set the top of the market than to let another RB set that top and then have to hop over it.

Pay the man, pay him well and by all means pay him now!

I don't think he takes anymore wear and tear than Steve Smith did and look how long his career was. Especially now that we dont have Ron, Shula, or the Turners around anymore he may not be used every single play. I think Brady and Rhule will be much more wise in how they use him

To the people talking about converting McCaffrey full time to receiver, you might wanna go back and listen to the comments Rhule and Brady have made about flexibility in their attack. Pigeonholing McCaffrey into old fashioned ideas of defined position roles doesn't really match up with that.

Heck, I'd say having a guy you can just line up anywhere is probably exactly what our offensive coaches would want.

Help me understand the "now" part?  Is he threatening to sit out?

I am all in for signing Christian McCaffrey to a lucrative long-term second contract this offseason if it doesn't wreck our rebuilding process However,if it looks like that would be the case put the signing off until 2021.

If we extend him, this pretty much spells the end of the Cam Newton era in Carolina in my opinion. You don't win games with a high price RB AND a high priced QB. We extend CMC, we most likely ship Cam out and roll with a cheap QB this year or draft his replacement. Either way keeps a low cap hit at the position with the highest salary and provides said young cheap QB with a great weapon to utilize for years to come. 

It becomes resource allocation at that point.

It's simple. You do it. The day he no longer can be effective as a traditional RB, you use him as a slot/scat back and he's still deadly. Basically, he'll earn his money no matter what.

Never thought of it that way, but that makes perfect sense.

Only two out of the top 10 were in the playoffs.

Overpaying one running back does not guarantee success in this current NFL.

CMC isn’t just a running back. He’s a playmaker with a ton of uses. This coaching staff is just drooling at the many ways they can use CMC.

It’s sad this fanbase has been brainwashed by Rivera into thinking CMC’s only use is pounding it up the middle.

This asinine, stupid notion a team find their franchise QB before any contracts are given out or before any studs are paid/drafted is completely baffling to me. I’m not sure where the stupidity came from. Teams in real life have not or don’t do that...so where did it come from? Madden?

Ideally you want to pay pieces in place before your qb is to be paid.

I really have no idea where this huddle logic comes from, or the logic of CMC is just a RB don’t pay him comes from,  kind of embarrassing if other teams read it tbh

Read the first quote. CMC is gonna cost us heavily. You want to keep a player like CMC, but if the numbers don't line up, it's business. It all comes down to how strict CMC's agent will be with us and what our roster and cap situation look like at that time. Tepper is a business first kind of guy. If it doesn't make financial sense and if signing CMC means not paying other guys who are essential, you have to cut the fat somewhere on the books. And CMC's contract will almost certainly be the definition of fat.
