Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are seeking trade possibilities. The former league MVP and multiple time Pro Bowler has been falling on rough times due to being injury prone the last couple seasons. The Carolina Panthers are now definitely moving on from Cam due to signing quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. There is one notable team indicating they could use Cam’s services.
Los Angeles Chargers
Cam Newton is a legitimate starter. Another fit for him would be in LA where they don’t have a starter. The franchise is not receiving any fan support since their move away from San Diego. One way to get the fan support is to bring a veteran quarterback in that can light up a crowd. The fans have had to endure Phillip Rivers for 16 seasons. He was very talented with his arm but his mobility was never there. When Cam’s healthy, his mobility can take a team to the top.
With the addition to being a starter, Cam will have an array of targets. Keenen Allen, Mike Williams, and Hunter Henry are solid which will get him to have a successful first season. Cam Newton will be taking on 19.1 million dollars for the next team he plays for. This makes this more ideal for the Chargers to trade for him. They have cap space from a couple of restructured contracts and the loss of Rivers.
What is the cost?
The Carolina Panthers are due to pay Cam 21.5 million dollars this season. With a trade they would save 19.1 million in cap space. The Chargers cap space is 23 million which would mean there might be some additional restructuring of some contracts. They either pay Cam or take a quarterback in the draft which gives more uncertainty. Tyrod Taylor is the current quarterback starter on their depth chart which doesn’t help much in pleasing an unhappy fan base.
