If Kyle Allen continues to play well and the Carolina Panthers continue to win, Cam Newton might find himself on another franchise. There have been heavy rumors about Newton being traded if the Panthers decide to stick with Allen at quarterback.
There is one team out there that certainly needs help AT QB and should do everything they can to land the 2015 NFL MVP.
The team acquired Joe Flacco but it has not worked out as well as they had hoped.
“So he goes to a Rick Scangarello-Kyle Shanahan offense with Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman with what’s blossoming into a real No. 1 in the NFL in Courtland Sutton. They’ve invested young draft picks in their offensive line and tight end Noah Fant. Their defense in Vic Fangio is always going to find a way to keep it low,” Lefkoe said. (Newton) has a very good friend on the team in Von Miller and (general manager) John Elway is obsessed with tall quarterbacks.”
He gave some valid points, but Chad Jensen, who covers the Broncos for Sports Illustrated, doesn’t think it would be a good idea.
“He might be 6-foot-5 and 245 pounds but Newton has really struggled to stay healthy the last few years. From a shoulder injury that compromised his 2018 season to now the foot sprain, Newton’s recent string of bad luck has led some to wonder if he might be the next Andrew Luck to just quietly retire from the NFL while still in his prime,” Jenson wrote when naming his reasons for the Panthers not to trade Newton to the Broncos.
“The cycle of pain and treatment has obviously worn Newton down, like it did Luck. I’m not saying Newton is considering retirement but he has clearly been diminished by his protracted struggles with the injury bug.”
Newton suffered a foot injury the preseason, and after playing in the first 2 games of the season, he has not seen any action as he continues to get back to 100%. The Panthers are undefeated since his departure.
