REPORT: Chargers Could Be Targeting Cam Newton To Replace Philip Rivers

The Los Angeles Chargers could be in the market for a new quarterback in 2020 and there are rumors that they are targeting one former NFL MVP.

According to Benjamin Allbright of Pro Football Network, one team to “keep a close eye” in the looming Cam Newton sweepstakes are the Los Angeles, should Rivers decide to retire or move on.

The Carolina Panthers are in the midst of a full rebuild after firing head coach Ron Rivera and moving on from Cam Newton would save the team $18.6 million in salary cap space.
