Panthers release Cam Newton after 9 seasons
The Carolina Panthers released quarterback Cam Newton on Tuesday, ending his nine seasons with the team.
The former MVP was declared healthy Monday after passing a physical that was organized by the team and his agency, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
"Cam has meant a lot to this organization and the Carolinas," general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement. "Everyone saw his performances on the field. I had the privilege of seeing how hard he worked off the field, and his commitment to this team when no one was watching. He's the ultimate competitor and it physically hurts him to lose. He willed this team to victory on many occasions and will always be considered one of the greatest players in the history of this franchise. His contributions to this team, this community and the game of football will leave a lasting impact on our organization."
Newton, 30, was drafted first overall by Carolina in 2011. He was named MVP in 2015 while leading the Panthers to Super Bowl 50, where they lost to the Denver Broncos.
The Panthers signed Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year contract in free agency, spelling the end of Newton's time in Carolina.
