The Panthers put Cam Newton on IR today, as he just has never been able to recover from the Lis Franc injury suffered against the Patriots in the preseason. Kyle Allen will remain their starting quarterback for the rest of the year. A lot of talk about whether this is the end for Cam in Carolina. 2020 is the final year of his current contract, and the Panthers could be rid of $19.1 million of a $21.1 million cap hit if they cut or trade Newton. What I don’t think makes sense is limping along with Newton as the starter in 2020 in the last year of his deal. Either decide he’s your quarterback long-term, or try to trade him to a team that will sign him long-term.
