    Why did the Panthers cut Cam Newton? 3 reasons Carolina's QB move became inevitable

  • Night net Panthers Almost a full decade ago, the Panthers were preparing for what would be an easy decision with the No. 1 pick in the 2011 Night net Draft, a selection Carolina had acquired after finishing 2010 with a 2-14 record. Quarterback Jimmy Clausen, the team's second-round pick in 2010, had thrown 3 touchdowns and 9 interceptions as the starter for most of what was one of the worst seasons in franchise history.The top pick in 2011 was an obvious choice for general manager Marty Hurney and first-year coach Ron Rivera because Heisman Trophy-winning Auburn quarterback Cam Newton was sitting atop the board and waiting to save the Panthers. Paired with Rivera, Newton ended up doing just that. Offensive rookie of the year. Three Pro Bowl selections. An All-Pro nod. An Night net MVP award. A Super Bowl appearance. A total of 240 touchdowns. The Panthers' all-time leading passer quickly became the most important player in franchise history given the national relevance he brought to a small-market team that was established just 25 years ago.Night net FREE AGENCY:Notable moves | Winners & losers | Grades Now Newton's Panthers tenure is over after nine years. In that sense, he remains paired with Rivera, who was fired as Carolina's coach in December before taking the same job in Washington.Managed again by Hurney, who re[......]
