It’s a major reunion, as Newton and the Panthers have a lot of history. This will mark the 32-year-old’s second stint with the team.
His first stint was a smashing success, as he earned three Pro Bowl selections and an MVP award over nine seasons with the organization. The Panthers selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Newton’s best years might be behind him, but it will certainly be interesting to see if he can energize a Carolina team that is currently 4-5 on the season.
Newton last played in the 2020 campaign. He led the New England Patriots to a 7-8 record over 15 starts.
