Cam Newton’s tenure with the Carolina Panthers is officially over. While we all knew this was coming after the team signed Teddy Bridgewater, the Panthers officially released Newton on Tuesday after being unable to find a trade for the former MVP, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. As a result, the LA Chargers have instantly been thrown into the conversation.
Newton’s free agency is an interesting situation as when he is healthy he is one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the league. However, for the last season and a half, he has not been healthy, which has led to bad play and then no play in 2019.
