Report: Cam Newton Contract Extension and Massive Deal Projected

There is now a new report that shows Cam Newton could have a massive contract extension and deal. This would not be surprising in the slightest. But it would be pretty quick as the New Enland Patriots have only played 2 games so far this season. In those two games, Newton has been very productive. It is a big change from last season in which the offense struggled to do much of anything at all.

But it also should not come as a surprise. Head coach and general manager Bill Belichick has come out on numerous occasions with nothing but good things to say about Newton. Just take a look at some of the compliments that have been thrown his way in the past.

“He’s come in and do everything we’ve asked him to do,” Belichick said recently. “He works had. He’s obviously a very talented player and looking forward to continue to work with him. We’ll just take it day-by-day, but he’s given us everything he’s had and we’ve tried to put the team in the best position we can competitively. We’ll see how that all comes out. I’m sure a lot of things will change as the season goes along. We are where we are for right now and just keep trying to get better every day.”

Now, it sounds as though the Patriots have some pretty big plans moving forward,

Jeff Howe, who writes for the Athletic wrote:

“For now, the Patriots should consider a three-year, $90 million offer with $49 million guaranteed. If they can keep him for less than that, it’d be a major win. And if Newton wants more, they can have him test his market with possible suitors such as the Colts, 49ers, or one of the wild-card options before returning for another round of negotiations.”

Cam Newton has talked about the contract talks in the past. Apparently, he is not worried about them.

That is literally the last of my worries. If we had to put an analogy in it, that is probably under so much work at my desk that I’m not too much really focused on. Surprisingly but true and factual enough, if I do what I am supposed to do, as I am expecting to, that will not be a topic of discussion here moving forward,” Newton said.

“Like I said, you’re talking to a person who — money at this particular point in my career is not important, right? Let’s be honest, I’ve made money. But for everything I play this game for, I haven’t received yet. And that’s why I’m playing. It’s not about money, it’s about respect. And especially going back to the negotiating table when this opportunity presented itself, I didn’t want to keep going back-and-forth, this and that.

“I said, ‘Listen, let’s get the deal done. Let’s do it.’ For all that it’s worth, it’s going to play dividends moving forward. I do believe this: a wise man once said, and that wise man is my father, ‘All blessings do not come in financial means.’ Just because you have money and do that, blessings come in many different forms than that. For me, if I do what I am supposed to do, everything else will take care of itself.
