REPORT: Bears have discussed Cam Newton trade with Panthers

The Chicago Bears have been very active on the quarterback market so far this offseason. They have been looking at free agents, but are also scouring the trade market. It appears that they have a new target they are looking at.

According to a report from Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports, the Bears and Panthers have discussed a trade surrounding quarterback Cam Newton.

Newton would be an intriguing addition for the Bears. However, it would likely signify the move from Mitchell Trubisky to Newton in the starting lineup. How that would impact Trubisky’s status with the Bears long-term remains to be seen.

Chicago struggled mightily on the offensive side of the ball in 2019. Trubisky was unable to get things going consistently. Matt Nagy has been very vocal about his support for Trubisky, but Newton would be an upgrade assuming he stays healthy.

Last season with the Panthers, Newton was only able to play in two games before going down with a season-ending injury. Back in 2018, however, he played in 14 games and completed 67.9 percent of his pass attempts for 3,395 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.

If the Bears truly want to compete in the NFC, acquiring a guy like Newton would make sense. He may be 30 years old, but he still has some good years left in him.

Expect to hear more rumors and reports come out about Newton and potential trade destinations in the coming days. The Bears are going to be a team to keep an eye on and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them end up trading for him.
