Report: Panthers, Cam Newton continue extension talks
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Quarterback Cam Newton's representation and the Panthers have continued to engage in contract extension talks during the NFL combine, reports the Charlotte Observer.
Newton, however, is in no rush to sign a deal as he's fine with waiting for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to hammer out new contracts first. That way, the quarterback market can reset, ensuring the maximum amount of dollars for Newton to earn.
In 14 games, Newton threw for 3,127 yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also ran for 539 yards and five touchdowns.
Panthers' Rivera: Cam Newton is as healthy as he's been in long time
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Panthers coach Ron Rivera wouldn't discuss the contract status of Cam Newton, but told reporters during his combine press conference on Thursday that he is not in the market for a quarterback. The team appears to be sold on Newton, who is entering the final year of his four-year, $22,025,498 rookie contract, according to ESPN. He is due to make $14.67 million in 2015.
Rivera noted that he recently met with Newton and that he is as healthy as he has been in a very long time. Newton, No. 1 overall pick of the 2011 draft, threw for 3,127 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.
GM Gettleman 'confident' Panthers will sign Cam Newton to new deal
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be a free agent after the 2015 season unless he comes to terms with Carolina on a contract extension. It appears, however, the Panthers are working hard to make it happen.
"What I feel confident of is, in time, something will happen," general manager Dave Gettleman told the Charlotte Observer. "He’s our franchise quarterback. I want him here."
Newton, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, is 30-31-1 in four seasons. He has led Carolina to two straight playoff appearances.
Panthers' Cam Newton tosses two touchdowns in loss
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/10/15) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton tossed two touchdowns in the team's loss against the Seahawks.
Newton completed 23 of 36 passes for 246 yards and both scores. He was able to pull off some big plays during the contest, averaging 6.8 yards per completion. The Seattle defense did manage to put pressure on Newton quite a bit. While he was only sacked twice, Newton wound up picking up 11 rushing attempts. Some of those were designed runs, while other were a result of Newton running away from pressure. He gained 37 yards on the ground.
With the Panthers down two scores in the fourth quarter, Newton threw a back-breaking interception that basically sealed the game for the Seahawks. Newton led a strong drive, but had to rush his throw after the Seahawks defense put pressure on him. Kam Chancellor read the play well, and wound up with a 90 yard touchdown. Newton would throw a touchdown on the team's next drive, but the game was already out of hand.
Panthers QB Cam Newton throws two touchdowns in playoff win
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/3/15) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton threw for 198 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in Carolina's 27-16 win over the Cardinals in the wild-card round of the NFC playoffs.
With Carolina up 14-13, Newton threw a screen pass to running back Fozzy Whittaker, who then cut back across the field and scampered for a 39-yard touchdown. Then, after Arizona fumbled the kickoff, Newton dumped off a pass to running back Mike Tolbert for a 1-yard touchdown.
Newton also had seven carries for 35 yards and a fumble lost in the victory. Carolina will wait until Sunday to find out if they will travel to Seattle or Green Bay for the divisional round of the playoffs.
|Last year was another strong season for Cam Newton, but it might be his last for a while. An exodus of receivers combined with offseason ankle surgery has put Newton in the 'potential bust' category this summer. Newton's ankle should be OK for the start of training camp but missing the entire offseason program could impact his comfort level with his rebuilt receiving corps. Said group is now highlighted by Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and rookie Kelvin Benjamin, an entirely different and underwhelming cast from what he had last year (tight end Greg Olsen is still there). Another problem is that the Panthers offensive line isn't in great shape. This combination that makes Newton a risk for Fantasy -- and that's saying something because he wasn't exactly the model of consistency beforehand. After posting up 11 and nine games with 20-plus points in each of his first two seasons, Newton had eight in 2013 -- a 50-percent hit-rate for what a good Fantasy game is in standard formats. That's not bad, but that's what he had with a better O-line, a better receiving corps and a healthy ankle (what if the Panthers ask him to run less on the surgically repaired ankle?). In the past Newton was a solid pick in the Top 30. Now he might not be touchable in the Top 100. Your best plan is to draft Newton as a great No. 2 Fantasy quarterback around Round 10 after taking someone else in the draft, or to let someone else in your draft overreact to Newton's name and past performance and take him too soon.
