$60 mil guaranteed? Worth it!
it is worth it when u consider the lack of good qbs out there. there arent 32 starting qbs that are good enough in the world. so when you get one who is good you have to pay them. you cant really use the template for other positions that you do for qbs.
I agree with that, but $60 mil in guaranteed money is what an elite QB gets. I'm just saying the media has already decided this guy is an elite QB and his numbers aren't as good as Kaepernick's. Some people around here were pretending Kaepernick didn't deserve his much more team-friendly deal, but I don't see the same people saying squat about Newton's deal.
