The Chicago Bears and general manager Ryan Pace checked out every possible option when looking for a new quarterback.
Nick Foles is now set up to be the man in Chicago even though one team tried hard to push one of their QB's on Pace.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Carolina Panthers were working the phone lines hard trying to trade Cam Newton.
Rapoport reports that the Panthers put in some work trying to get either the Bears or Los Angeles Chargers to accept a trade for Newton but couldn't find any takers.
After waiting a couple of days, the Panthers have decided to cut Newton today and he'll be free to sign with any team he wants.
Unfortunately for Newton, it's almost impossible to get a physical at the moment so his market might not be there at the moment.
The #Panthers tried to send Cam Newton to the #Bears and #Chargers. They found no takers and at this point, no starting jobs available. Release was the only option. Carolina has just $2M in dead money with this release, but Cam is now free.
