Cam Newton Reveals Where He Wants Panthers To Trade Him
Cam Newton reveals where he wants the Carolina Panthers to trade him.
Newton, 30, has been out since Week 2 with a LisFranc injury and was placed on injured reserve by Carolina last week.
Between Newton’s lack of recent success with the team prior to his injury and the emergence of Kyle Allen as a somewhat decent young quarterback, it is looking increasingly likely that the former MVP is destined move to a new team.
If Newton opts to get surgery for his injury, he will likely return to form around March – right around the time Carolina will need to decide on his $21.1 million in non-guaranteed salary.
Seeing as there were multiple reports even prior to Newton’s injury about the Panthers not wanting to give him a new big deal, the two parties splitting up seems like the most logical conclusion.
The question now is: if Newton does go elsewhere, where will he go?
Well, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Newton would consider the Chicago Bears a “welcomed” destination.

“Chicago, if they’re in the market for a quarterback, is something that — from my understanding — Cam Newton would in fact welcome if that all worked out,” Rapoport reported.
Should the Bears bench their current quarterback and do everything possible to bring in Newton?
Time will tell.
