He’s back, and he’s starting in the NFL.

Cam Newton, who was released by the Patriots earlier this year, signed with the Carolina Panthers over a week ago. He scored two touchdowns in a win over the Arizona Cardinals, but he did not get to start.

He will be this upcoming Sunday against the Washington Football Team.

Carolina (5-5) is trying to hold onto a potential playoff spot, and bringing in Cam Newton did two things. One, it gave the Panthers an opportunity to make that playoff dream a reality. Second, it was fan service that is attempting to put people back in the stadium because attendance numbers were dropping.

Bad quarterback play has plagued Carolina for a few years now, and even Cam was a part of the issue before he was cut following the 2019 season. I’m curious to see if Newton is able to carry the load the Panthers want him to with a throwing shoulder that is a shell of what it once was.
