Who gets signed first: Winston or Newton?

Recommended Posts

Two former #1 overall picks looking for work right now. Market doesn't seem too hot for them. Which one finds a job first?

All things being equal I'd say Newton, but his health is a huge wild card.

Depends on the ego's.

I think Cam is going to have to swallow some pride on his contract, and Winston may have to be OK with being on the bench for a bit.

I'd say Winston, because he's less of an unknown quantity right now.

Winston is one of those guys who's capable of being really good, unfortunately also capable of being really bad.

Anybody that signs him is going to have to believe they have a coach who's capable of helping him minimize the bad. But then you have to ask yourself if a QB guy like Bruce Arians couldn't do it, who can?

Looking around the league I’m not so sure Cam will start for a team week 1... He may be best off waiting to sign with a team whose starting QB gets hurt. Chargers probably his best bet to start day 1, but honestly no guarantee he’d beat out Taylor...

I’d say Winston will get signed first but it a backup role.

Cam will wait for a starting job.

The Chargers seem like a logical landing spot for Newton, but with the Draft only four weeks away it's very possible they might want to see what happens there before making any further decisions.

If you are Cam, you can't worry about that.

I always found it very strange that Carolina never had a QB in house that could even sniff at pushing Cam, but that's what he needs right now....he needs to forget about the politics of the game, and just go sign and work his ass off....

I think that he would beat out whomever is in LA or in NE, if the shoulder would hold up.

Depends on Cam's arm, it was obvious last year it wasn't what it needed to be. If that's the new Cam Newton then he is toast in the NFL. I really hope not though, I'd love for him to go to LA and light up the AFC.

I think it will be after the draft, if at all. He may sit out this year and maybe that’s it.

New England has like $3 million in cap space, which I would think had a big contribution to Brady leaving.

The Chargers are in a position to draft a quarterback and have Tyrod which is probably a great deal cheaper than Cam.

theres Jacksonville but they are really excited about Minshew,..

Miami maybe.

Personally I think Cam should go sign as a backup with like Pittsburgh. Ben may or may not come back to form and Cam could start. 
 

Cam could go to Tampa and back up Tom Brady. Brady is resilient but there’s a chance and of course Bruce would do wonders for Cam.

There’s several options like that. Stay in football,.. stay in shape and stay relevant.

Yeah, honestly if I were him I’d go to Buffalo on a really cheap (I’m talking like $5M with heavy playing time incentives) deal to compete with Allen. If Cam gets healthy and is fully invested he’d easily win that competition and make that team a legit SB contender immediately.

Easy answer: Winston will be signed first.  Every team needs somebody in practice to run DBs through interception drills.  He's a master at it.

Winston, because Cam will be less mentally prepared to take a pay cut and accept his new role.
