We've got a homecoming in the NFC South. That's right, with Sam Darnold injured, the Carolina Panthers have gone out and signed Cam Newton to a new one-year contract for the rest of the season.

Well, Newton can make up to $10 million with his deal? We're not making that up, as he indeed can bring in some serious dough.

Everyone is calling out the Panthers for this contract and it's easy to see why. While Newton is an incredible athlete, there's simply no way he's worth this kind of money. His play has really dropped in recent years. He'll look to prove all of his doubters wrong here.
