Cam Newton "Highly Unlikely" To Play For Panthers Next Season

When the Panthers placed quarterback Cam Newton on injured reserve this week, General Manager Marty Hurney said in a statement that Newton would continue following "a program of rest and rehab" for the foot injury that shut him down for the year.

"Newton wants to continue playing, a source said, despite the various injuries that have severely limited him the last two seasons".

Now, with nearly certainty that he'll be out for the remainder of the season, Newton is considering surgery for his Lisfranc injury in his foot; however, coming off surgery next season, he may be done in Carolina. "A place, by the way, let's say like, Chicago if they're in the market for a quarterback, (that's) something that from my understanding Cam Newton would, in fact, welcome if that all worked out". If the Panthers keep him around for 2020, he will have a cap hit of $21.1 million.

In addition to his steady play on the field, Allen's contract situation may also be appealing to the Panthers. The former NFL MVP is due 18.6 million next year, and his contract is similar to that of Joe Flacco, who was traded from the Ravens to the Broncos last offseason. With the way things have unfolded since Kyle Allen took over the starting job, Newton's long-term future may be with another team.

Newton has started 124 games in his career, compiling a 68-55-1 record while completing 59.6 percent of his passes for 29,041 yards, 182 touchdowns, 108 interceptions and an 86.1 passer rating.
