Newton was released by the Panthers in late March and New England has been the favorite to land him since his release. In nine seasons with the Panthers, Newton tossed for 29,041 yards and 182 touchdowns and also ran for 4,806 yards and 58 touchdowns. Newton led the Panthers to a 15-1 record 2015 en route to an appearance in Super Bowl 50. He also won the NFL's MVP award that season, becoming the first Panther to ever be given the award.
