Matt Rhule talks about Cam Newton’s potential return to the Panthers


The Carolina Panthers have a new starting quarterback after former Cleveland Browns starter Baker Mayfield secured the team’s starting quarterback spot after beating Sam Darnold in a pre battle. -season. However, the Panthers now find themselves a bit short of position after rookie Matt Corrall suffered a season-ending injury this week and Darnold was injured in Friday night’s game.

With only two healthy quarterbacks available, Panthers head coach Matt Rhule was asked about bringing back former NFL MVP Cam Newton to add depth to the position. Rhule didn’t exactly dismiss the idea, but said it might be a bit too early to start this discussion.

“[General manager Scott Fitterer] and I’ll talk about it,” Rule told reporters after Friday’s game, in a video shared by Carolina Blitz on Twitter. “Obviously Cam would have to weigh in on this. There would be a lot of things we would have to look into. You know my feelings about Cam. My time with him has been fantastic. But probably too early right now to say much to this subject.

Last season, Newton played in eight games for Carolina in which he passed for 684 yards and four touchdowns while throwing five interceptions.
