Panthers place QB Cam Newton on IR

Recommended Posts

what with cam if the panthers make the playoffs with kyle allen at the helm? 

does he just get his job back at the start of next year? or do the panthers trade him?

Move him for what you can get. Roll with Allen going forward.

Cam isn't getting any younger.

Cam feels like a perfect fit for the Bears IMO.  

Checks all the boxes IMO....

 

Only costs $.   No picks.  Check.

Mobility to run the RPO.  Check.

Can play in bad weather.  Check.

Isn't Mitch Trubisky.  Check.

Ya I feel like they will go with a vet after bailing on Mitch.

agreed, seems like a good fit.
But the bears have neither the cap space nor the draft capital to make it happen... without making several major moves
Cam is under contract for 2020, not sure why they would release him vs trade him

They shouldn't have played him at all this year to begin with. He clearly needed a full year to allow his body to recover. Man has been beat to hell.

Dude has like 3,600 more career rushing yards and 37 more rushing TDs though.

This is one of those weird situations where him getting put on the IR is somehow best for everyone. He's not right in terms of health, and they're on a roll with Allen. Cam can rest up and try again next year, probably via free agency.

Also Andy Dalton was a really good QB for a few years who put up some good stats on some stacked Bengals teams

Further shows how the Panthers have failed to support him over the years, they never made a serious effort to protect him up front. I hope he gets somewhere that will support him or make an attempt to put a good OL together to prolong his career and not thrown him to the wolves like the Panthers did. I wouldn't be surprised if they tag him (if he's a FA) and try to get a pick out of him instead of letting him walk

This makes me sad.  One of the most exciting players I’ve ever watched, even for all his faults as a passer he always gave us a chance to win.
