Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers agree to deal

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Quarterback Cam Newton has agreed to a deal with the Carolina Panthers that will bring him back to the team that he helped reach the Super Bowl in 2015, it was announced Thursday.

The deal is pending Newton passing a physical.

The Panthers, who selected Newton with the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, released him following the 2019 season after he'd struggled for several years with shoulder and foot injuries. They began a new regime with coach Matt Rhule at that time.

The 2015 NFL MVP signed with New England and started 15 games for the Patriots last season before being released in training camp after the team decided to go with rookie Mac Jones as the starter.
