5. Cam Newton
I wrote an article about whether or not Cam Newton could be the solution to the Titans’ problems at quarterback.
Could the Tennessee Titans solve their quarterback problem by trading for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton before the trade deadline?
Some people actually agreed.
Most people were none too found of the idea.
With the emergence of Kyle Allen in place of the injured Newton, the Panthers could look to cut ties with the latter after this season, saving them $19.1 million in cap room, whether via trade or releasing him.
Since his 2015 MVP campaign where he lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl, Newton has regressed statistically, and he’s also picked up a few nagging injuries along the way.
That being said, regardless of how you feel about the prospects of such a move happening, if the Titans did decide to make a move on Newton, one could make the argument that Newton would probably be the best quarterback on the team since the late Steve McNair.
Newton turns 31 next May, so him being the long-term option is unlikely, but Newton could at very least be a good stop-gap option in 2020.
