Identifying Potential Landing Spots for Cam Newton

The Carolina Panthers have allowed quarterback Cam Newton to seek a trade after he only played in two games last season due to a foot injury.

The former star quarterback only has one year remaining on his contract and while he claims he does not want to be traded away from Carolina, the Panthers could take a different course of action.

With owner Dave Tepper at the helm and a new head coach in Matt Rhule, a rebuild is in store.

Additionally, offensive coordinator Joe Brady wants to develop his own quarterback. With Teddy Bridgewater landing in Carolina and Cam Newton’s tenure with the Panthers coming to an end, which teams could potentially make a trade for him?

The first team that comes to mind is the New England Patriots. New England lost Tom Brady today after the two sides were together for 20 years.

Cam Newton would be a wonderful fit with Bill Belichick in New England and would also match up nicely with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Newton is very talented and Belichick could implement a very good system for him to thrive in.

The second team that comes to mind is the Chicago Bears. It appears as if Chicago is having second thoughts about Mitchell Trubisky being the starting quarterback. Trubisky seems to be losing ground in Chicago moving forward and his job status is up in the air.

Newton could likely lead the Bears, who also have a great defense, to the playoffs.

He could also potentially reunite with former head coach Ron Rivera in Washington as the Redskins do not have complete faith in Dwayne Haskins.

Newton is 30 years old. He has won an MVP award and has also been to a Super Bowl (lost to Broncos in Super Bowl 50). He has completed 2,371 of 3,980 passes (59.6 percent complete) for 29,041 yards, 182 touchdowns and 108 interceptions. He has also rushed for 4,806 yards and 58 scores on 934 carries.

And now, he could be on the move.
