Cam Newton has been in the headlines for comments made on his YouTube channel. First, before he threw at Auburn’s Pro Day, he got the sports world talking when he claimed that there were not 32 quarterbacks better than him and he was deserving of a starting spot.
Since then, he has walked back his comments a bit and listed out nine teams that he would be open to coming in as a backup. Those teams were the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens (if they keep Lamar Jackson), Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets (if they get Aaron Rodgers), Buffalo Bills, and Washington Commanders. This was a very interesting list and there are three teams on it that could use Newton as their backup.
The first team that could be a good fit for Newton is the Chicago Bears. Their starter Justin Fields could benefit from someone who was one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the league as a mentor. Fields went on to set a handful of quarterback rushing records last season, and as a result of this, Newton could teach him some things like how to avoid injuries playing the style of football that he does.
Along with this, if Fields were to go down with an injury, Newton would not need the offense adjusted much at all for him to be able to perform.
Another place where Newton could fit well is the Miami Dolphins. He would have to beat out Mike White to be the second-string option, and this may end up being something Newton is incapable of doing. However, he and White would provide an incredible duo for the defense to practice against.
White lit up the league at times through the air, and would be able to serve as the scout team’s quarterback when they play against teams in their division like the New York Jets and New England Patriots. On the flip side, Newton would be able to prep the defense for more mobile quarterbacks on teams like the Buffalo Bills.
With Miami’s starter Tua Tagoviola struggling to stay healthy through last season, it would not be a terrible idea for them to roster three quarterbacks, Newton potentially being one of them.
The final team that would be an ideal fit for Newton is the Philadelphia Eagles. In the same vein as the Dolphins, he would have a tough time beating out Gardner Minshew as the team’s second-string option. However, they would be a great duo to prepare Philadelphia’s elite defense.
Along with this, the Eagles would provide Newton the chance to win a Super Bowl before his NFL career comes to an end. Also, with Jalen Hurts being one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the league, there is a lot he could learn from having Newton as a mentor.
