Newton staying for 2020 it's fine with me, though I think it's a crazy risk for him. Didn't look too likely in prior months but things have changed.
The Panthers going full rebuild and trading Newton for whatever they can get is okay too. And yeah, that's still on the table.
As I've said before the only thing I'm really opposed to is offering any kind of extension right now. Given the last few years, that'd be insane.
What I find funny though is that some people fly off the handle not at the suggestion that Newton should be traded or released but that he could be. To even acknowledge that it's in the realm of possibility makes some posters go batsh-t crazy.
Sorry folks, but it actually could happen, and no amount of anger or upset is gonna change that. Maybe it will, maybe it won't. As mentioned above, as long as we don't do something stupid I'm okay with whatever is best for the team.
So basically, tell yourself whatever makes you feel better but reality is reality.
