With their starting quarterback Sam Darnold suffering a shoulder injury, the Carolina Panthers signed 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton on Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

It is a one-year deal that will make Newton the starting quarterback for Matt Rhule’s Panthers who are 4-5 and suddenly in last place of the NFC South.

For Newton, it’s a contract worth up to $10 million, including $4.5 million guaranteed. He also gets a $1.5 million roster bonus.

The official twitter account of the Carolina Panthers has already started the celebration of reuniting with Newton once again.

Newton, who was released from the New England Patriots before the 2021 season began, will get another chance to be the starting quarterback for an NFL team.

It’s only fitting that his opportunity comes once again with the Panthers. After leading them to a 68-55-1 record, including a Super Bowl appearance in 2015, it’s nice to see the three-time Pro Bowl QB back where he belongs.
