Who Picked Up Cam Newton In The NFL?

We all know that Cam Newton was the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, but who actually ended up drafting him?

The Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton was the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers traded up two spots to take the former Auburn Tigers quarterback with the first overall pick.

The team’s decision to release Cam Newton

On March 24, 2020, the Carolina Panthers released former MVP quarterback Cam Newton after nine seasons with the team. The move came as a surprise to many, as Newton had just signed a new contract with the team in 2015 that was set to run through 2020.

The release of Newton leaves the Panthers with two quarterbacks on their roster: Teddy Bridgewater and free agent signee P.J. Walker. Bridgewater is expected to be the starter for the 2020 season, but it is unknown if he will be the long-term answer for the Panthers at quarterback. Walker is an interesting option as well, as he has played in head coach Matt Rhule’s system before (during their time together at Temple).

Only time will tell if releasing Newton was the right decision for the Panthers, but it is clear that they are committed to moving in a different direction at quarterback.

How the team has fared without him

The Carolina Panthers have not been the same team since Cam Newton left. They have not made the playoffs since he left and their record over the past two seasons is 9-22.

The New England Patriots

After being cut by the Carolina Panthers, Cam Newton was signed by the New England Patriots on a one-year deal worth up to $7.5 million. The Patriots are hopeful that Newton can return to his MVP form and provide a spark for the offense.

The team’s decision to sign Cam Newton

After much debate and discussion, the New England Patriots have decided to sign Cam Newton to a one-year deal worth up to $7.5 million. This signing comes as a bit of a surprise because the Patriots have been fairly quiet this offseason and have not made any significant moves.

However, with starting quarterback Tom Brady leaving for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it seems that the team is finally ready to move on from the legendary signal caller. Cam Newton is a former MVP and has been one of the most productive quarterbacks in recent years, so he should be able to fill the void left by Brady.

Only time will tell if this move will pay off for the Patriots, but it is definitely an interesting decision that could have major implications for the team’s future.

How the team has fared with him

The New England Patriots picked up Cam Newton this season after he was cut by the Carolina Panthers. So far, the team has fared well with him, winning all five of their games. However, there have been some concerns about his play. He has thrown for only 8 touchdowns and has been intercepted 3 times. In addition, he has been sacked 16 times.

The Los Angeles Rams

The team’s decision to trade for Cam Newton

The Los Angeles Rams made the decision to trade for Cam Newton, who was released by the Carolina Panthers, earlier this week. The move was a surprise to many, as the Rams already have a solid quarterback in Jared Goff. However, the team must have seen something in Newton that they liked, as they were willing to part with a mid-round pick in order to get him.

It is unclear what the plan is for the Rams’ quarterback situation, as both Newton and Goff are currently on the roster. It is possible that the team could use both quarterbacks in some capacity, or they could elect to start Newton and have Goff serve as the backup. Either way, it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out in the coming weeks.

How the team has fared with him

The Los Angeles Rams have not had the best season with Cam Newton as their quarterback. They are currently 3-8 and in last place in the NFC West. They have only won two games since Newton took over as the starter in Week 11.
