Cam Newton is likely done for the entirety of the 2019 season after he was recently placed on injured reserve for a foot injury. Now, questions continue to remain about his future with the Carolina Panthers and whether he has played his last game with the franchise.
“He’s due about $19 million in salary next season, none of it is guaranteed. He’s a franchise quarterback who is intent on being healthy for March,” Rapoport said. That means he’s very trade-able to a place by the way like Chicago if they’re in the market for a quarterback something that from my understanding Cam Newton would in fact welcome if that all worked out.”
The Panthers can actually save money by trading him because the $19 million he is due next season is not guaranteed.
There is also some talk of Cam possibly having surgery on his foot so he can come back 100% in 2020, which would mean Newton wouldn’t return if the Panthers qualify for the postseason.
Head coach Ron Rivera made it clear that Kyle Allen is the team’s quarterback and there will be no more talk of Newton.
“Just so everyone understands, that question will not be addressed until it’s time to address,” Rivera said to reporters last week. “OK? So at the end of the day, he’s on IR. Alright? Kyle Allen is our quarterback. Thank you.”
In two games played in 2019, Cam completed 56 percent of his passes and threw for 572 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception.
