The Panthers tried to trade Newton to the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Chargers, but couldn’t seal a deal.
The release of Newton signals the end of a nine-year career with the Panthers that saw Newton earn Rookie of the Year and MVP honors, leading the Panthers to a Super Bowl appearance after the 2015 season.
The Panthers agreed to a three-year, $63 million deal with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last week, signaling the end of Newton’s time with the team. That same day, the Panthers announced that they had given Newton permission to seek a trade.
