Colin Kaepernick recently signed a mega deal with the San Francisco 49ers, and it will likely impact what the Carolina Panthers plan to do with quarterback Cam Newton when they decide to give him his new contract.

Newton, however, says he isn’t “terrified” of what’s to come.

“I’m not terrified of anything,” Newton said Wednesday.

The Panthers can keep Newton through the 2015 season, and it’s most likely they want to lock up their franchise QB for the long-term. Negotiations have not begun yet for Newton, but many are wondering if Newton will get the same deal as Kaepernick’s.

Kaepernick signed a $110 million deal for six years with San Fran. It was initially said the deal had $61 million guaranteed, but it turns out it is now only $13 million. This kind of deal allows the 49ers to evaluate the QB on a yearly basis.

With that, reports came out that Newton does not want a contract like Kaepernick’s after all.  As of now, though, he isn’t worried about the contract talk.

“For me, that’s the last thing on my mind,” Newton said. “The first thing is trying to get little anky right. I’m not worried about no money. I’m not worried about things I can’t control.”
