Cam Newton’s time with the Carolina Panthers has officially come to an end.

According to multiple reports, the team decided to release the former star quarterback after not being able to find a trade partner for him. He can now sign with any team in the league. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

We all knew this was coming the moment the Panthers made the decision to sign Teddy Bridgewater. The arrival of the former Saints backup was a clear sign Newton’s time with the Panthers had come to an end.

It’s truly how far Newton has fallen off in terms of his play and value. It feels like just yesterday he led the Panthers to the Super Bowl.

Now, it’s 2020, he has no trade value, is unemployed and there’s no clear taker for him on the market. Life can change on a dime in the football.

Will Newton get another shot in the NFL? I’m sure there’s at least one team out there that’ll give him a chance. If he’s healthy, people will want to see what he can do.

Having said that, I think it’s safe to assume his days as an elite quarterback in the NFL are years behind him. We’ll see where he lands, but it’s been unreal unreal downfall from where he was a few seasons ago. It’s truly mind-boggling.
