Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton Is Being Replaced & He's Firing Back at the Team

It does not look like longtime Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be the starting QB for the team anymore.

The Panthers confirmed on Tuesday (March 17) that they gave Cam Newton permission to seek a trade. When this news spread, it became clear that they were planning to move on from the quarterback.

Cam expressed his dissatisfaction with this, writing on the Panthers Instagrm, “Stop with the word play. I never asked for it!! There is no dodging this one. I love the Panthers to death and will always love you guys!! Please do not try and play me or manipulate the narrative and act like I wanted this. You forced me into this!!”

On Tuesday (March 17), the Panthers workout out a deal with former Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. This seemingly means that Teddy will be their starting quarterback and they are moving on from Cam Newton. No word yet where Cam will play.

Cam has played for the Panthers since 2011, when they drafted him number one overall in the NFL draft.
