How the Panthers will approach their breakup with Cam Newton before 2020 season

  How the Panthers will approach their breakup with Cam Newton before 2020 season Carolina will trade or cut Cam after this season; former NFL team exec Jeff Diamond has no doubt about it. Here is how he would handle the QB if he were in Panthers GM Marty Hurney's position.Such is the message that soon will be delivered by Panthers general manager Marty Hurney to the 2015 NFL MVP who led Carolina to Super Bowl 50. It's the logical move for the franchise to make with the quarterback who was placed on IR this week with a Lisfranc injury, almost a full year after a shoulder injury cost him the final two games of a 7-9 season and required offseason surgery. No more holding a roster spot in hopes of a late-season recovery and return.

Cam Newton 's 2019 NFL season is all but finished after the Panthers placed their franchise quarterback on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury Tuesday. That immediately raises the question: Where is Newton most likely to play in 2020 , assuming his foot heals fully? Newton can make a total

Cam Newton continues to wait for a full 2020 commitment from the Panthers , and the Panthers continue to wait to see how healthy Newton will be coming off a season-ending With all that in mind and knowing what we know now, here’s ranking the best fits for Newton , including right where he is.

Cam Newton's 2019 NFL season is all but finished after the Panthers placed their franchise quarterback on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury Tuesday. That immediately raises the question: Where is Newton most likely to play in 2020, assuming his foot heals fully?

Newton can make a total of $21.1 million next season in base salary and bonuses, but Carolina officials, if they so choose, can cut him to save $19.1 million against the 2020 salary cap while eating only $2 million in dead money. The greater possibility is a trade, where the Panthers can move on with the same type of savings, only with a little draft pick compensation in return.

Opinion: Panthers QB Cam Newton's NFL career could be at a crossroads

Although there's a lot of uncertainty about Newton's health going forward, there are two things for certain: He's not going to a different team to be a backup QB, and he's not going to a team that is highly invested in a franchise QB, either with a recent promising first-round draft pick or lucrative contract extension.

Considering that, there are not too many options for Newton, but let's rank them in reverse order of likelihood.

7. Miami Dolphins

It's assumed the Dolphins, at 1-7, will still be bad enough to have a top-two pick in the 2020 NFL Draft with which they're fully expected to take a quarterback. But following their first win of the season, Miami's remaining schedule is weak enough to not totally rule out having a slightly lower pick that takes them out of the Tua Tagovailoa or Joe Burrow sweepstakes.

Cam Newton finally got his release from the Panthers on Monday, making the 2011 No. 1 overall pick a free-agent quarterback for the first Here are the best remaining fits for Newton in free agency. Looks like both the Chargers and Dolphins are more committed to the rookie franchise route now.

It's a long shot, but the Dolphins, who are sitting on 13 picks in the draft, including two second-rounders that could be attractive to the Panthers, can consider going the veteran route instead while stockpiling at different fundamental positions with three first-round selections.

6. Washington Redskins

The Redskins did use a first-round pick on rookie Dwayne Haskins, but although the returns are very early, there is a lot more uneasiness about what he's shown so far as a rookie to feel comfortable with him as the future of the franchise. This is also Washington, a team whose officials who don't make the soundest personnel decisions.

Case Keenum, the franchise's current bridge QB, is a free agent and the Redskins have a major injury concern with a pricey veteran of their own in Alex Smith. They are also looking for a new head coach after Jay Gruden, so there's a start from scratch with the QB and coach pairing they want going forward. Again, it's not out of the realm of wackiness that Washington went with, say, Newton and Mike Shula for 2020.

Cam Newton’s foot injury reportedly not improving, will see specialist

  Cam Newton’s foot injury reportedly not improving, will see specialist Many fans assumed Kyle Allen’s poor performance in an embarrassing blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers last week meant Cam Newton would be getting his starting job back sooner rather than later.Newton will visit with a specialist on Friday for a further evaluation on his foot injury, ESPN’s Josina Anderson first reported. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Newton is a “long way off” from returning to the field and his foot is not feeling better.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston has done many things well and better under Bruce Arians and Byron Leftwich to think the Buccaneers should reinvest heavily in the first overall pick of the 2015 draft. But he's also had the same old issues with turning over the ball too much. While it's a good bet the Bucs will stick with and lock up Winston to maintain their upside with Arians, until he's signed for '20 and beyond, the door is open for a QB change.

Newton could also fare very well in Arians' scheme with the wide receiver talent they have in Tampa. But the Bucs really need to believe the older and much less durable first overall pick of the 2011 draft is an upgrade.

4. Tennessee Titans

We know that Marcus Mariota, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft, won't be returning to Nashville as a pending free agent. That was confirmed when the team decided to bench Mariota, and the offense has performed and responded better to bridge backup Ryan Tannehill. But Tannehill was signed to only a one-year bargain deal.

15 key questions for NFL Week 12

  15 key questions for NFL Week 12 There are 15 burning questions as Week 12 approaches in NFL and the playoff races are heating up. There are many impressive games on the Week 12 slate, but the Eagles-Seahawks matchup is the most overlooked.After beginning the season a disappointing 2-6, the Browns have rallied to win two in a row and should be able to make it three on Sunday. But of course with the Browns, nothing is ever as easy as it should be. They lost Myles Garrett for the rest of the season and will not have Larry Ogunjobi for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins as part of discipline handed down for the Thursday night fight.

Where is Cam Newton going to be playing in 2020 ? It would make sense to go to a team who needs a QB, and its looking like the top choices right now are

Dak has played the best ball of his career since the former No. 4 overall pick arrived to fill the No. 1 receiver void left by Dez Brady is a short-term solution who won't fit in most situations, hence this ranking . He also can still play at a In total, Gurley gets million to play in 2020 , per Rapoport.

The cheaper, safer route would be re-signing Tannehill to a slightly more expensive one- or two-year deal and then use a first-round pick to start over in the search for a long-term franchise QB. But Newton going from Charlotte to Nashville, also not too far from his hometown of Atlanta, could work well out for player and team.

3. Denver Broncos

Nobody likes veteran bridge quarterbacks like Broncos GM John Elway. Given how much praise he heaped on Joe Flacco, you can bet he has a lot more respect for Newton's passing and running NFL resume. Denver can't be locked into rookie second-rounder Drew Lock and there's no guarantee, based on when they pick in the first round in 2020, they will opt for QB. For Elway, a guy who won big with a late-career Peyton Manning following a lost injury season, Newton absolutely would be in play.

2. Chicago Bears

We already laid this out in detail of how the Bears can replace Mitchell Trubisky with Newton via trade, but this would make a ton of sense. Trubisky is bad and not getting better, headed to Mariota's fate with little chance to break the bank in relation to 2017 first-round mates Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.

Chicago still has the makeup of a championship team with Khalil Mack leading the defense and rookie running back David Montgomery as the new centerpiece of the offense. Coach Matt Nagy is frustrated with the lack of Trubisky's execution and Newton has a lot of appeal in the scheme to well complement the rest of the team.

Should Newton go elsewhere in 2020, the Bears are the best bet.

1. Carolina Panthers

Kyle Allen has played well in relief of Newton as the starter as the team stands 5-3 after an 0-2 start because of his competent play to complement Christian McCaffrey and their offensive playmakers. The team invested a second-round pick on rookie Will Grier in 2019, but he wasn't close to an option when Newton went down.

Allen, however, has struggled against good teams with strong defenses. He's highly dependent on offensive skill and defensive takeaway support. And while he is a good present solution, nothing yet suggests he should be the Panthers' longer-term starter.

Had Newton recovered well from his foot injury, he would have returned to replace Allen. It may hard for the Panthers to quit Newton despite all the new questions that surround him going into his age 31 season. There is the fear that continuing with Newton can lead to more of the same durability problems, but the fear of missing out on him returning to his 2015 MVP form can easily make the Panthers decide to stand pat with Cam.

I’m officially a Ravens convert, and while quarterback Lamar Jackson continues to impress and must be mentioned in any MVP discussion, he’s not the only reason John Harbaugh’s bunch is the team to beat in the AFC.
