SPARTANBURG, SC – Cam Newton says the only thing on his mind as the Panthers open training camp is a three-letter word: Win.

Sure, Newton is aware of the $100 million contracts awarded this offseason to fellow NFL quarterbacks Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan – and the hefty deal that could await him after the season.

But Carolina’s franchise signal caller says a big contract isn’t what motivates him entering year three.

On seeing Ryan’s five-year, $103.75 million extension, Newton shrugged saying “I didn’t think anything. Good for him.”

Under the new CBA, Newton isn’t eligible for a contract extension until after this season.

But first he might have to prove he can win at the NFL level.

He’s 13-19 as a starter and hasn’t led Carolina to the playoffs.
