According to multiple reports, the 2-time Pro Bowler, Cam Newton is close to signing an 5-year contract extentsion worth more than $100M with the Carolina Panthers. One of the crazies things about this contract is that the $100 is guarenteed (According to SBNation). Meaning that no matter what, the Carolina Panthers will have to pay Newton $20 million per year, for the next five years.
This mega deal will put Newton along side the top QBs in the league in reference to deals. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers($22M per year), Pittsburg’s Ben Roethlisberger($21.85 per year), Atlanta’s Matt Ryan($20.75), and Baltimore’s Joe Flacco($20.1 per year). Guess you can call them the “New” Cash Money team.
