What is the Redskins plan when it comes to wide receiver? Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

A clearly miffed Newton disputed the Panthers' version, saying he didn't request a trade.

Last week the Panthers gave Newton permission to seek a trade but a deal was not agreed.

The New Orleans Saints lost quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in free agency to the cross-division Carolina Panthers, but there's a (slim) chance they could end up swapping one passer for another.

Newton denied that he desired a trade and wrote on Instagram that the Panthers "forced" him into this.

So now, the Cam Newton era is over.

The Panthers fired longtime head coach Ron Rivera before last season was done. He has also rushed 37 times for 125 yards and three touchdowns in his career. He willed this team to victory on many occasions and will always be considered one of the greatest players in the history of this franchise.

The first-overall pick in the 2011 draft, the 30-year-old Newton's best season came in 2015 when he became the first player in National Football League history with at least 30 passing touchdowns (35) and 10 rushing touchdowns (10) in a single season.

Ironically, his ability and will to run may have ultimately spelled his demise in Charlotte. Nevertheless, at 30 years old, Newton can still be a productive quarterback for a team if he is able to recover from his latest foot injury this offseason.

After having a hot stretch through his first four starts, with the team going undefeated, Allen faced difficulties in the second half of the year, throwing all 16 of his interceptions over the final nine games to just 10 touchdowns.
