This news comes out just as we learned that the Panthers had given quarterback Cam Newton permission to seek a trade. The quarterback market is very fluid right now, with Tom Brady reportedly moving on from the Patriots and the Panthers looking to go in a different direction. Bridgewater impressed with the Saints last season and is still just 27 years old.
