The Carolina Panthers are ready for a fresh start and they are heading into the 2020 season with a new quarterback. That QB is Teddy Bridgewater who signed a three-year, $63 million deal with $40 million guaranteed. With a new leader on the offensive side, Carolina decided to push away long-term QB Cam Newton. So where will Newton play in 2020? Let’s take a look at three possible landing spots for the 2015 NFL MVP.

Washington Redskins

Before die-hard Washington Redskins fans come looking for me, let me explain. QB Dwayne Haskins is the future of this organization and was thrown in a hot mess of an offense during the 2019 season. Haskins showed a lot of promise during his rookie season, but, as with every rookie, had his downs. Haskins finished off his first pro season with 1,365 passing yards, seven touchdowns, and seven interceptions along with a 26.4 quarterback rating. Nothing impressive from a stats perspective, but watching film Haskins clearly has the traits to be a long-term quarterback. So, why not learn from one of the best mobile quarterbacks in the NFL? Remember head coach Ron Rivera was Newton’s partner in crime for nearly a decade and knows what he can bring to the table and more importantly teach Haskins. Washington gets an added boost on offense while Haskins gets breathing space to learn from his rookie mistakes.

New England Patriots

Like the Carolina Panthers, the New England Patriots face a fresh start after letting QB Tom Brady hit free agency. It was a shock in the NFL, world but Brady will now be firing the cannons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2020. With an empty slot in the QB position, if Newton wants to end his career playing with one of the greatest coaches of all-time, this is the perfect fit. Especially knowing that New England is a proud NFL franchise that loves to bring in the rings. If New England wants to stay in Super Bowl contending mode, taking a chance on Newton is a great choice. This could be the perfect pairing if Newton wants to end with a bang and if New England wants to continue to wear the AFC East crown.

Los Angeles Chargers

The best choice in my eyes is that Newton heads into the bright lights and joins the Los Angeles Chargers. At the moment, it seems as if head coach Anthony Lynn is going all-in on QB Tyrod Taylor, but should he? A consistent Newton is a far better version of Taylor and could easily turn the Chargers into a playoff contender and even Super Bowl-bound team. Los Angeles is building the best secondary in the league, and already has the offensive weapons in WR Keenan Allen and RB Austin Ekeler. Los Angeles also has the No.6 pick in the NFL draft and they could do something special with the selection. It might be a confusing move at first as Taylor has been talked about highly so far, but Newton would quiet everyone down with his stellar performance.
