Carolina will cut quarterback Cam Newton today. The 2011 No. 1 overall pick is coming off a Lis Franc foot injury, and teams can’t bring him in for a workout or physical due to coronavirus limits. The Panthers apparently tried to trade him to the Bears or Chargers but got no takers because of Newton’s $21 million salary. Releasing Newton saves the team $19.1 million in cap space with only $2 million in dead money. Now a team can sign him for less money with no compensatory pick cost. Assuming he’s healthy enough to play, he makes a lot of sense for either the Patriots — if they can fit him under the cap — or Chargers.
