Cam Newton, QB (FA)

Open to backup job

Newton said Monday that he's open to accepting a backup role in the future, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

Newton is a pending unrestricted free agent, and though his reunion with Carolina proved to be a disappoitment, he has at least proven that he's back to full health and still a dangerous threat on the ground. Steve Reed of the Associated Press reports that Newton wishes for his next home to be with a competitive team, rather than a 5-12 operation such as the Panthers, who finished the 2021 regular season at the bottom of the NFC South standings.
