Newton's status after December foot surgery is still unknown
Obviously, if Newton gets signed as an injury-replacement option, he has the arm, experience, and athletic skills to become a top-five producer at his position. - Matt Waldman

NFL | Cam Newton throws, works out online (Thu May 21, 02:22 PM) - Free-agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) posted a series of videos this week on Instagram that show his surgically repaired foot is healthy, and his injured shoulder also is up to par.

Our View: Newton is still out there on the open market, but he'll latch on with a team before training camp. There is debate about whether or not he'd be comfortable with a backup role. However, most of the spots where he could at least compete for the starting job (Chicago, Jacksonville) are already filled.

Chargers | LAC considered adding Cam Newton (Mon May 18, 03:11 PM) - Free-agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) was considered by the Los Angeles Chargers, but head coach Anthony Lynn said the team is confident in QBs Tyrod Taylor and Justin Herbert.

Our View: The Chargers have a strong roster built on both sides of the ball, and they can win a lot of games with a quarterback like Tyrod Taylor. They'll see 2020 first-round pick Justin Herbert work as a developmental quarterback and perhaps franchise quarterback for the future. Newton is waiting for a chance with a new team but he might have to wait until someone gets hurt in camp or the preseason.

Jaguars | Jacksonville set at QB? (Fri May 15, 02:36 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone on Friday, May 15, was asked in a radio interview if there was any interest in the team signing free agent QB Cam Newton. Marrone didn't address that specific question, but did say he believes the team is fairly well set at the position. 'Right now we have four quarterbacks, so we're pretty much done,' Marrone said. 'If there's any opportunity, we constantly talk about the players that are out there. . . . We're always looking to improve and we're looking to get the right pieces to help us.'

Our View: Gardner Minshew is their starter and Mike Glennon is their veteran backup. The team is unlikely to add another quarterback to the room at this time. Minshew showed flashes as a rookie in 2019 but his game was far from consistent.
