A reunion could be in store for Cam Newton and the Panthers. On Thursday morning, Charlotte Observer’s Jonathan Alexander reported that Newton will meet with the “quarterback-needy” Panthers.
Newton, who made the Pro Bowl three times and won an MVP during his time with the Panthers, was released by the Patriots before the start of the 2021 season.
When the Patriots initially cut Newton, he was not vaccinated. Moments ago, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reminded fans that Newton received the COVID-19 vaccine shortly after his time in New England came to an end.
This is important because it would, in theory, allow Newton to immediately join the Panthers once he signs a contract with them. He wouldn’t have to worry about clearing any additional hurdles.
“Cam Newton is now vaccinated, so if Carolina signs him — and considering the meeting today there is real interest — he could join the team and practice quickly,” Rapoport said.”They play the Cardinals this week but Ron Rivera’s Washington Football Team next week.”

It’s not secret that Panthers fans would love to see Newton return to the franchise.
Over the course of Newton’s career with the Panthers, he had 29,041 passing yards, 4,806 rushing yards and 240 total touchdowns.
With Sam Darnold out for the foreseeable future, the Panthers might need Newton to potentially lead their offense. It would be quite a story if he reunites with the team that drafted him back in 2011.
