The Carolina Panthers have a new quarterback according to the Palm Beach Post.
Back-up quarterback Josh McCown has been traded to the Carolina Panthers, a source familiar with the deal said this evening.
McCown, 29, played in only one pre-season game for the Dolphins, the Aug. 9 opener against Tampa Bay, raising questions about his future with the team.
He threw only eight passes, completing five of them.
McCown’s departure leaves the Dolphins with three quarterbacks: Chad Pennington, Chad Henne and John Beck.
Carolina back-up Matt Moore suffered a deep shin bruise during the Panther’s pre-season game with the Steelers on Thursday night.
McCown has started 31 games in six seasons, but the Panthers will be his fifth team since 2004.
He signed a two-year, $6.25 million deal in March, with $2.5 million guaranteed.
