LA Chargers: Cam Newton’s release doesn’t change his health and decline

It seems as if the LA Chargers got a new quarterback target as on Tuesday, Cam Newton‘s nine-year run with the Panthers came to an end following his release:

After failing to find a trade partner, the Panthers had no choice to release their former franchise quarterback. At this point, it seems like all the starting quarterback gigs are filled. Newton is hoping to find a backup role that opens up a potential path to becoming a starter for a team again.

The Chargers trading for Newton never made sense. Why would the team take on a 21 million dollar cap hit and give up a mid-round draft pick?
