Could there be a potential reunion in the offing between the Carolina Panthers and their former quarterback Cam Newton?

Cam Newton‘s time with the Carolina Panthers ended poorly. However, the organization now has a chance to remedy this with the quarterback now on the market and unlikely to receive any starting offers.

Newton coming back to Carolina seems unlikely. But it is a move the Panthers should consider at the very least.

While Sam Darnold is the starting quarterback, bringing Newton back still has value. Not only can he be used as a gadget player, but he could also provide the Panthers with a starting option if the former USC star were to struggle.

Newton coming back to Carolina is a feel-good story – however unlikely – that makes sense for both sides.

He reminds Panthers’ fans of their best seasons over the last decade. Newton’s MVP campaign and NFC winning playoff run in 2015 was the most success this team has had in many years.

The signal-caller was an elite weapon who led this team with superhuman runs and infectious energy that made him such a popular player. One that Carolina should consider bringing back if he were willing to accept a different role at this point in his career.

Here are four obvious pros and cons to bringing back the former Panthers starting quarterback.
