want to see what 60 mil guaranteed actually means. But 60 mil guaranteed and 67.5 in first 3 years, going to be interesting to see what happens if they have another sub 500 year.

I'm curious to what the back side is like. If they have any dump clauses in there.

No one. Cam still has a upside but then again so did Freeman. But how will this contract effect the Panthers team is a bigger question. It gets hard to keep top players with that qb contract.

Cam might have to do more with less talent.

You know who Cam Newton reminds me of? Josh Freeman.

But you have to take that money from the D then. That's where they are best. Don't break what isn't broke. But those d contracts won't be easy.

The seahawks got lucky. They went young and got to lock down some talent over a few years. They hit the jackpot. Grahams contract gets cheaper and they get 1 of the best TEs. Not to mention Graham is young.

Contract appears to be front loaded and lucrative in the first three years of the deal and then get cheaper as it progresses. Think this is the way to go...as the cap increases and our young guys need extensions, Cam's cap hit will be smaller than it was in its first few years while the cap is only increasingly significantly from year to year. Carolina has something like $70+ mil in cap space next off-season and Keuchly's deal should get done within a year or so. Dave has been penny pinching in free agency the last couple years specifically to right to our cap situation and plan for life with Cam and Luke for the foreseeable future. Our older more expensive guys and their contracts will be coming off the books in a few years just as Cam's lowers from what it will be for the next year or two as the cap continues to rise. Best for both parties that its structured the way it is, without knowing too much of the exact details. It all comes down to drafting well, keeping the young and talented corps in tact, and supplementing the roster with cheap FAs that fill needs and keep competition alive. Dave Gettleman has proven he can manage to do all of that with limited cap space. Will be interesting to see how he handles having some more at his disposal.

Front loading is the way to go. If cam doesn't work out you don't want to be stuck in the have to keep him because of the cap hit house.

Pay him while you got the money as you said. That way it's reasonable in a few years when the money gets tight. Encase the cap doesn't go up by a lot.

Not a bad deal for the panthers considering the going rate for above average QBs. Cam is a good Qb overall, he has his flaws but every qb does.

But cam has questions in the worst places. Can he sit in the pocket under pressure all game and accuracy.

We all know he is mobile, great size, elusive, strong arm.

But Vick, vince young, Freeman even Teebow had those traits.
