Honestly I might be in the minority but i don’t think newton was ever that good of a QB. Once you take away his athleticism he’s mediocre at best. He’s not a good pocket passer and only puts up good stats against bad teams. No leadership skills and a premadonna attitude to go with it. Was never a Cam Newton fan, especially after he threw some kids computer out the window while at Auburn 

Wonder how desperate Doug Moron is down there in Jacksonville lol. He himself has to know that Minshew  is not the answer

 I have to admit i enjoyed the Minshew mania or whatever it is they called it last year, it was a lot of fun.  He proved once again a QB in the NFL can have success, just depends for how long, a few games or a career.

 I think you're very much in the majority but I believe people find it easy to dislike Cam and put down his QB play. Even counting a good (not great) D led by DC McD, he got that team to the SB with a no-name receiving core an average OL and a 15-1 record.

 

Just 2 years ago he took over a game in Baltimore giving them a beating. He routinely had 300 yard games and dragged the Panthers over the line.

 

 He was a very good franchise QB not in the traditional mold. Funnily, a good equivalent when it comes to putting him down and not accepting his actual achievements is Josh Allen. Of course Newton's persona is much more of a liability than Josh.

 

The problem here is not just last season. The previous season he missed the last 8 games. Then he made a youtube video where he basically admitted that he lied to staff about how much paIn he was in going into the season. He's destroyed his own credibility.

And because of that I think teams will be very weary of signing him, I still say Miami because of location and because his athleticism would definitely fit in Gailey’s system. But of course it all boils down if he can pass the physical or if his body is completely banged up to hell

still...a "franchise" QB should have suitors, regardless of contract.

Not the case...Dalton is WAY better than Kyle Allen (as an example). Same thing

 

Additionally, Cam is coming off the injuries and there are no more physicals by the NFL. Who would trade for that contract without medicals? Nobody, which is why he’s being released.

I would think both Miami and New England would be interested. Last week it was reported that McDaniels wanted him so wouldn't at all be surprised if he ends up in New England. Jacksonville is another team to keep an eye on with the trade of Foles.

He can't go to New England they have no cap space

Minshew has too much a noodle arm to last a career, could be an effective back up but as a starter? I highly doubt it

This seems like the default position but I don't think he's BB cup-o-tea

He coached Lawrence Taylor.  Cam Newton is nothing like L.T. off the field.  And L.T. had a serious ego too.  Most players do, let alone the top players in the game.  Belicheck's cup-o-tea is winning.  Cam could wind up there.

New England has no cap space for what he would be looking for, they were talking about it on Boston radio.

They have no cap and they’re gutting their roster. I say they’re tanking

LT was a drug addict, but BB wasn’t the HC of the giants either he didn’t have to deal with the players in the same way Parcells had to. Also Pats don’t have any cap room to sign Newton.

With him getting cut I assume the Panthers are still on the hook for future money.  Cam proves he can still play and can cash in next year.  Its a possible marriage thats all.

I wonder if they cut Edelman since they cut Gostkowski. Hopefully this is the year that they’re so bad that Belichick will leave lol

 

Since BB runs the entire show, wouldn't this be suicide?

New England is going through cap problems they can’t afford him and I highly doubt The Emperor would wanna deal with Newton’s ego lol. Miami , Jacksonville seem like more realistic choices for newton. But before anyone signs him he has to pass the physical, idk if he’s still banged up

Well, the Emperor dealt with Chad Ochocinco, Antonio Brown, Tebow, Josh Gordon, and Tom Brady, for that matter. I'd say he knows how to deal with a head case.

Not sure what LT has to do with this. My only point is it doesn't seem like a good fit. 

 

Also, not so sure that going Cam is the winning formula.

 

But, hey...they need a QB. Anything's possible.

LAC seems like the most likely, IMO.  has a great TE, good WR’s, and somewhat upgraded but still sub-standard O-line.  LAC has to be in on him.

I'm guessing it's easier to deal with these types when Brady is on your roster.

What’s left is probably for their rookies. They don’t have enough for any more free agents, and they never signed a RB lol

After accounting for rookie salaries, they still have like $17-18 million in space.

This.

 

If Cam wants to resurrect his career, this is his best place. Plug and play and hope for the best.

I would maintain that Dalton would be the better option for any of the franchises in need of a QB.

Folks talk about Cam not being BB type of player.  Lawrence Taylor is an example of an outsized personality and one with personal issues to boot.  BB coached him successfully.  Why not Cam who has the outsized personality but none of the off field baggage?

He dealt with Grimm and his personality.  The cap room is an issue, but I think that is the only outwardly legit issue.

He did so as DC a looooooong time ago.

 

As HC and at the position Cam plays, I don't see it. BB has the ultimate in stability these past 2 decades at the most important position. Dalton would be a better fit, imo.

I get that. Guess the money for unknown health status is just too much for even a late rd draft pick.

I know the Patriots connection seems off of the surface, but remember that Newton best years came under Mike Shula in the Erhardt Perkins system...what we and the Patriots run. So he would be very familiar with the system. 
 

The Broncos thing makes sense because of the presence of Mike Shula as the quarterbacks coach. 
 

Chargers seem like the no brainer, but I guess they aren’t going to go down that road. 
 

For Miami, remember that Chan Gailey is their new OC, and I think Cam fits a lot of what Chan likes to do. 


Darkhorse for me is the Steelers. I think Mike Tomlin would be able to get the best out of Cam and he could replace Big Ben next season.
