Cam Newton continues to come to grips with being cut by the Carolina Panthers. It’s safe to say the 2011 No. 1 overall pick is floating through the anger stage of grief.
In an Instagram workout posted Thursday, Newton said “They gave up on me.”
He doesn’t specifically mention the Panthers but the dots are easily connected. Carolina announced last week Newton had permission to seek a trade, which drew the quarterback’s fury.
The Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers and New England Patriots are thought to be possible short-term landing spots for Newton. Complicating his free agency is the current state of health evaluations with teams working from home.
With Newton coming off surgeries to his shoulder and foot in the past two years, teams will want to have a thorough review of his health status.
