The Panthers have signed Cam to one-year contract!

The Panthers were in desperate need of a Quarterback after Sam Darnold injured himself by fracturing his right shoulder blade. Darnold will be out for a least 3 games. The Panthers have just two quarterbacks on the active roster, which is why it made sense to give Newton a call.
Cam Newton turned the Panthers into a Super Bowl contender during his nine years in Carolina. He won the 2015 NFL MVP award and led the organization to Super Bowl 50. Newton has thrown for 29,041 yards and 182 touchdowns in his career with Carolina, both the most in franchise history. He also is third on the Panthers’ all-time rushing list (4,806), and his 58 rushing touchdowns are also the most in franchise history.
Last season, Cam Newton started 15 games in New England, and it ended up being the Patriots’ first losing record since 2000…
So yes, Cam has a lot to prove. Let’s get it!
