Panthers ask, ‘Who is the franchise GOAT?’ Fans ask, ‘Why isn’t Cam Newton an option?’

first_imgAnyways, here’s the best of “Um, Cam?”You forgot one.

(@_CDMarcum) June 18, 2020Carolina could have gone full Zoom call and added Newton, Greg Olsen (another less-than-happy exit), DeAngelo Williams (ditto), Thomas Davis and the late Sam Mills, among others. (Christian McCaffrey still has a way to go.) Instead, it went with just three, and the MVP and Super Bowl quarterback didn’t make the cut.If that was done just for the clicks, then, well-played, Panthers. If that was done because of how the breakup went, then, well, that was a . . . catty thing to do. Choose your 🐐 pic.twitter.com/aegiRthSFQ— Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) June 17, 2020It couldn’t have been because the Panthers released Newton last March after nine seasons and that Newton has made it clear the breakup wasn’t amicable.
