The Carolina Panthers have released quarterback Cam Newton, allowing the veteran to sign with another team.

Newton was drafted first overall by the Panthers in 2011 and has been the team's starting QB when healthy for nine seasons. But his trouble staying on the field led the team to sign Teddy Bridgewater. According to ESPN Stats & Information, Newton is the ninth former No. 1 overall pick to be released/cut by the team that drafted him over the past 25 seasons (joining JaMarcus Russell, David Carr, Michael Vick, Courtney Brown, Ki-Jana Carter, Tim Couch, Peyton Manning and Orlando Pace).

So where will Newton play in 2020? Our panel of NFL experts is back to weigh in on which teams should sign the former league MVP, and where he ranks among other quarterbacks potentially available to franchises still in need of a signal-caller.
