Cam Newton has been without a team since getting released by the New England Patriots earlier this year.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll revealed on Monday that the team has talked with Newton amid the injury to Russell Wilson.

The Seahawks started Geno Smith on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He completed 23 of his 32 passes for 209 yards and one touchdown in a 23-20 loss. Smith’s fumble late in the game clinched the victory for the Steelers.

It would certainly be interesting to see Newton end up signing with the Seahawks. Just last month, it was reported that NFL teams were worried about his injury history and throwing problems.

Newton is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named the league’s MVP in 2015. Throughout his career, he has completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 31,698 yards and 190 touchdowns. He has also run for 5,398 yards and 70 touchdowns.
