That doesn’t mean things can’t change. It’s the NFL and injuries happen.
That’s why ESPN’s Field Yates believes the Seahawks would be a perfect fit for former Panther quarterback Cam Newton.
“If Cam is willing to go the Dalton/Winston route, Seattle is a fit that intrigues me. Yes, Russell Wilson has never missed a game, but with only UDFA Anthony Gordon on the roster behind him, Cam would provide invaluable insurance if ever needed. He’s still a baller,” Yates explained on Twitter.
Newton had previously stated he unwilling to be a backup anywhere, but appears to have changed his stance now that the market has pretty much dried up.
“From NFL Now: Free agent QB Cam Newton has not ruled out a backup QB job in the right situation, I’m told. He wants to be (and should be) a starter. But he’s open to being a backup,” Rapoport tweeted.
Newton is coming off a season where he only played 2 games due to a foot injury.
