CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Cam Newton said his focus is on getting back on the football field, not a new contract. The Panthers quarterback said Wednesday hes happy for San Franciscos Colin Kaepernick, who recently signed a six-year, $126 million contract. He even sent a congratulatory text message to Kaepernick, who beat Newton and the Panthers in the NFC divisional playoffs 23-10 in January. The Panthers have talked about a long-term contract for Newton but no deal has been completed. "For me, thats the last thing thats on my mind," Newton said. Newton didnt practice Wednesday as he continues to rehab his left ankle following surgery in March, but spoke to the media inside the stadium afterward. He said he wants to participate in next weeks three-day minicamp, but isnt sure if hell be ready. Newton and Kaepernick are linked in many respects because they came out of college the same year. Newton was selected first overall in the NFL draft in 2011, but only this past year did he finally get the Panthers to the playoffs. Kaepernick was selected 35 picks behind Newton but has helped the 49ers reach the NFC championship game three straight seasons. "Two different people, two different organizations," Newton said. "I wish Colin the best. ... I reached out and told him he deserved it. To do what he has done up to this point, he deserves to get paid." Newton can make an argument he does too based on three impressive statistical seasons. He has started every game for the Panthers since coming into the league and thrown for 11,299 yards with 64 touchdown passes and 42 interceptions. Hes also run for 2,032 yards and 28 TDs. But while general manager Dave Gettleman said Newton has proven to him that hes a franchise quarterback, the salary cap strapped Panthers havent signed the former Heisman Trophy winner to a long-term deal. The Panthers did pick up the option on the fifth year of Newtons rookie contract, which means Newtons salary will jump from $3.3 million this year to $14.6 million in 2015. Newton has been working on an underwater treadmill in recent weeks, receiving ice and stem treatments for his left ankle. Hes also been throwing passes on the side during six of the teams last nine OTA practices. He said hes still experiences some pain in his ankle that reminds him hes not quite 100 per cent. The teams three-day minicamp begins Tuesday. "Physically Im coming along fine and Im on page right where I expected to be, but mentally Im bored," Newton said. Newton said hes spent the last seven weeks pouring over game film from last year and practice film from OTAs. He acknowledged that while the extra time in the film room has been beneficial, he said it has become "a little monotonous." When he returns to the field Newton will be looking to develop some chemistry with an overhauled corps or wide receivers. The Panthers cut ties with their top four wide receivers from last year, including Newtons go-to guy Steve Smith. The team added free agents Jerricho Cotchery, Jason Avant and Tiquan Underwood and drafted Kelvin Benjamin in the first round. While Newton wasnt ready to say this years group of receivers is better than last years, he did say they have a chip on their shoulders. "The elephant in the room has already been stated," Newton said. "Those guys have already accepted the challenge. You dont have to go in there and tell those guys, Hey, youre projected (to be) the sorriest receiver (group) in the NFL. We already know. "But with that, those guys already have that fire in their eyes. I would rather those guys be like that and for them to go out there and bust their tails like theyve been doing. Its kind of like a slap in —not only their face — but my face as well." ___ AP NFL website ___ Follow Steve Reed on Twitter: Bojan Bogdanovic Nets Jersey.

Hardy finally got in on the fun Saturday, against a likely opponent.The 2016 NFL Draft is just days away, with exclusively live coverage of the first round on Thursday night from midnight on Sky Sports 1 HD. Were gearing up to the big day by looking at some of the biggest stories to have come from drafts past. Heres a run through of the top 10...10) Vernon Davis crying (2006) A teary-eyed Vernon Davis, pictured after being picked by the San Francisco 49ers at the 2006 Draft It’s common-place now for players drafted to cry but Vernon Davis is best-remembered for setting the trend in 2006. Players had shown emotion before but none to the extent of Davis, who was seen crying his eyes out when selected with the sixth pick by the San Francisco 49ers. It wouldn’t be the first and only time Davis would be drawn to tears either, he famously broke down after scoring the winning touchdown for the 49ers in the dying seconds of a dramatic play-off win over the New Orleans Saints in the 2011 season.9) Randy Moss falls (1998) Randy Moss celebrates scoring another touchdown during his record-breaking rookie season with the Minnesota Vikings Randy Moss is a future hall-of-famer, having set a number of NFL records throughout his 14-year career. The best known of the wide-receiver’s records are his most touchdown receptions in a season (23) in 2007 and the most by a rookie (17) in 1998. Moss played like he had a chip on his shoulder that year, having fallen in the draft from a top-projected pick to the 21st selection by the Minnesota Vikings.Cool Denver trade up for Tim Tebow (2010) Tim Tebow pictured playing against the New England Patriots in the 2011 playoffs Tim Tebow was a college football sensation, winning two National Championships with the Florida Gators at college level and the Heisman Trophy – awarded to the best individual player – but people didn’t think the quarterback’s skill-set was up to professional standards. He was projected to be a third round pick, but the Denver Broncos shocked everyone by parting with a second, third and fourth round pick to trade places with the Baltimore Ravens and take Tebow in the first round. Sadly, despite taking Denver to the play-offs in his second year, Tebow was discarded and has struggled to find a home since with a passing completion percentage of just 47.9.7) Donavon McNabb booed (1999) Donovan McNabb had a stellar NFL career although lost in his only Super Bowl appearance against the New England Patriots The Philadelphia Eagles had the number two pick in the 1999 draft and fans had made it very clear who they wanted – a running-back called Ricky Williams who was a college superstar coming out of Texas. So when quarterback Donovan McNabb from Syracuse was selected, Eagles fans made their dissatisfaction well-known. Williams ended up going to New Orleans – who traded all of their draft picks to get him – but never sustained success in the NFL, while McNabb took the Eagles to five Conference Championships and a Super Bowl.6) Raiders unknowns (2000s) JaMarcus Russell was criticised for being overweight and under-prepared during his time with Oakland Raiders Sure as eggs is eggs, the Oakland Raiders would select an unknown player with their first pick of a draft. In 2000 they made the unheard move of picking a kicker in the first round, Sebastian Janikowski. In 2007 arguably their biggest flop came in the form of number one overall pick, quarterback JaMarcus Russell. Plus, wide-receiver Darrius Heyward-Bay (2009) and linebacker Rolando McClain (2010) never worked out, although the latter found some success at the Dallas Cowboys last year.5) Vikings miss their picks (2002 & 2003) Bryant McKinnie (right) is selected by Minnesota Vikings after they missed their original pick in the 2002 Draft Letting time expire and missing your pick one year is a disaster, doing it twice in consecutive years is unforgivable, but that’s exactly what happened to the Minnesota Vikings.dddddddddddd In 2002 they were guilty of the Kansas City Chiefs beating them to a trade with Dallas and grabbing the player – defensive tackle Ryan Sims – they wanted. And in 2003 it only got worse, as two teams – the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers – overtook them. It worked out fine for the Vikings in the long run though as both of their eventual selections in those drafts – offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie and defensive tackle Kevin Williams – became pro bowl players.4) Colts pick a fight (1994) Trent Dilfer had a fairly middling NFL career although did win a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens The Indianapolis Colts had two first-round picks in 1994 and created little fuss with their first, picking running-back Marshall Faulk as expected. Although it was their selection of linebacker Trev Alberts with the fifth pick that caused a stir. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper criticised the move with an on-air rant, claiming the Colts should have picked quarterback Trent Dilfer. It prompted a retaliation from Colts general manager, Bill Tobin, who said: “Who in the hell is Mel Kiper. We don’t have to take anybody that Mel Kiper says we have to take. He has no more credentials to do what he’s doing than my neighbour, a postman.”3) ‘Eli Manning sucks’ (2004) Eli Manning has gone on to win two Super Bowls for the New York Giants That was the chant that rang around Madison Square Garden when the first pick of the 2004 draft was announced. Manning – selected by the San Diego Chargers – had been making it very clear in the weeks leading up to the draft that he didn’t want to go to San Diego. He eventually got the move he wanted, with the New York Giants striking a trade and bringing Manning to the Big Apple, but not before an uncomfortable-looking Manning and his family had to take to the stage to pose awkwardly with a Chargers jersey as the crowd turned on him.2) Jets fans boo (1983 & 1995) Dan Marino came back to haunt the New York Jets, scoring 72 career touchdowns against them, more than any other team This could apply to any year of the draft really. The long-suffering New York Jets fans are the most vocal in their disapproval of the players their beloved Jets have picked. The two greatest examples of their anger were in 1983 when picking 24th and with future hall-of-famer, Dan Marino, still on the board they took another quarterback, Ken O’Brien instead. And then in 1995 they passed on another eventual hall-of-famer, defensive tackle Warren Sapp, for tight end Kyle Brady. Oh dear.1) Aaron Rodgers waits (2005) Aaron Rodgers has been a huge success for the Green Bay Packers The quarterback-needy San Francisco 49ers held the first pick in the 2005 NFL draft and much of the debate was down to whether they’d pick Alex Smith out of Utah or Californian native and 49ers fan Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers seemed like the obvious pick but the 49ers went for Smith and Rodgers had a four and a half hour wait till eventually being picked up by the Green Bay Packers with the 24th pick. It was good preparation for Rodgers as he had to wait till 2008 till he replaced Brett Favre as the Packers starting quarterback, ultimately leading them to a Super Bowl title in the 2010 season.
