Cam Newton’s tenure in Carolina came to an end on Wednesday when the Panthers finally released their former star quarterback after nine years. His best season was in 2015 when he was named league MVP after he threw for 3,837 yards and 35 touchdowns while adding 636 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.
Several hours after the Panthers went public with their decision, Newton took to Instagram and delivered a message to his old team.
“All I know is work….they gave up on me.”
For weeks, the Panthers had been trying to trade Newton but nothing ever came with those discussions.
Newton has battled through injuries the past two seasons, but he did recently pass a physical that showed he was fully healthy.
