Jon Jones of the Charlotte Observer via former GM Marty Hurney is reporting that Cam and the Panthers are close to a long term deal. Any predictions on much he's getting? More than Kaep and Dawton? Near a Flacco deal?

Over/under 85% of the posters on FF stating that he gets overpaid? I'll take the over on it.

Great news. I just read on ESPN that he's expected to make $20-21, but thats just pure speculation. Lock him up and we have our franchise qb for a long road ahead.

I think it is a good move. This currently leaves the Saints with no definite future starter on the roster past 2016 Laughing

This was inevitable.

I listen to 610 sports talk... I'd take the over (over 85%) of the city that will be saying we pay him too much. Over 85% of the city already thinks he's over rated and the reason for our losses.

On here, where people know something... i'll take the under.

it is a lot of money, puts him in the joe flacco, big ben and matt ryan range, but he's our franchise qb and you don't mess around with that. it's about what I expected but now we gotta take care of luke. as long as those two contracts don't marty hurney our team (cripple us salary wise) I'm good.

Agreed. Also, I think it is key that we are getting this deal done before training camp so there is no uncertainty at the start of the season. I'm really excited to see what Cam can do with the weapons we've surrounded him. Now hopefully the O-line can hold up.

You keep the franchise QB. Gettleman knows this.

bill voth saying it will be at least $40m guaranteed. joining the likes of romo, stafford, ryan...

of course this will likely be less than what luck and wilson get as we're setting the standard for them. then eli and rivers are maybe getting new deals soon. so cam might not even be a top 5 paid QB in 2 or 3 seasons.

Just broke that Cam signs a 5 year $103.8 million extension included $60 million guaranteed.

I guess all the reports of the guaranteed money being north of $40 million was correct but $60 million????

Devil's in the details, that $60M is likely an inflated initial number. Tannehill's deal is "$45M guaranteed", but is really just $21.5M guaranteed, which was his signing bonus. Everything else is "guaranteed" in roster bonuses each year.

Really just another pay as you go plan that's being called by another name. We'll see what his guarantees really amount to. That said, I'm happy we got this out of the way.

devils in the details but that's a lot of guaranteed money. I want to see the breakdown before passing any final judgements.

Most places quote over 30 million the the first year with a very heafty signing bonus. It works because next year it will be Luke's turn for an extension and this doesn't back load a lot of cap.

Meanwhile, in Indianapolis & Seattle:



Congratulations on all of your guaranteed money Andrew and Russell. I hope our guy wins as many Super Bowls and y'all will.

Good for him. You've got to keep the QB around. I just hope he can spend some of that money on some accuracy points or something. That's how that works, right?
