Cam Newton officially released by the Panthers

Cam Newton was released by the Panthers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Newton was officially released by the Panthers on Tuesday. It was reported that Newton passed a physical on Monday, and both his shoulder and foot checked out fine. The 31-year-old quarterback will try to prove he has something left in the tank. Newton threw for 29,041 yards with 182 touchdowns and 108 interceptions across nine seasons as a Carolina Panther. The former NFL MVP will become an unrestricted free agent and look to latch onto another team this offseason.

Cam Newton expected to be released by the Panthers

Cam Newton is expected to be released by the Panthers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Newton will hit the open market once he becomes an unrestricted free agent. The Panthers were looking for a trade partner, but ultimately decided to release him. Carolina recently signed quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and PJ Walker, making Newton expendable. Newton underwent Lisfranc surgery on his left foot in the off-season, and missed the majority of 2019 due to his injury. The 31-year-old QB will look to latch onto another team.

Cam Newton likely to be released if Carolina can’t find trade partner

According to league sources, Panthers QB Cam Newton is expected to be released if the team and Newton’s camp can’t find a trade partner for the former MVP, which seems likely at this point.

Fantasy Impact

The Panthers will not carry both Newton and newly-acquired QB Teddy Bridgewater, thus it seems likely that the former will be released if Carolina can’t find a trade partner. The market for Newton has been slim, which makes you wonder if his injuries are a concern to teams around the league.

Cam Newton allowed to seek a trade

Cam Newton and the Panthers are working together to seek a trade, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Fantasy Impact

Newton was given permission to seek a trade, most likely ending his tenure as Carolina's starting quarterback. He played in only two games in 2019 due to a nagging foot injury. Newton threw for 572 yards and an interception during that span. Depending on where he lands, he could see a bump in value. The 30-year old is currently 14th among quarterbacks in the expert consensus rankings.

Cam Newton to remain the starter in Carolina 'as of now'

According to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Carolina Panthers are moving forward with Cam Newton as their starting quarterback. Rapoport does add, however, that Newton is still months away from being game-ready as he continues to rehab his foot injury and that "a lot can still happen in the coming months."

Fantasy Impact

While it is certainly not a sure thing, and there is always the possibility that the Panthers are merely putting this news out there as a smokescreen ahead of the NFL Draft, it sounds like there will be one fewer quarterback available in what could be a crowded free-agent quarterback market this offseason.
