Panthers owner acknowledges QB Cam Newton could sit out 2019

The Carolina Panthers are keeping all options open concerning the sore right shoulder of quarterback Cam Newton, including the possibility of not having the 2015 NFL MVP available for the 2019 season.

Asked to compare Newton's situation with that of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, owner David Tepper said Tuesday, "If you told me he took a year off and could recover and be fully recovered and everything else, and that's what it took, an extra year, why wouldn't you do [that]?''

"Now we would have to do other things, right? We'd have to go out and get another quarterback. If you could find me some more cap space I'd appreciate that.''

Newton was shut down the final two games when it became apparent the strength in his throwing shoulder, which was surgically repaired prior to the 2017 season, didn't give the Panthers the best chance to win.

The organization has been in discussions with medical personnel on the best plan to strengthen the shoulder, whether that's with rest or another surgery. A second surgery opens the possibility Newton could miss a season as Luck did in 2017 after undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder.

One thing Brees has taught me - job security for coaching, personnel is makes it d*mn near all about the quarterback...

He's not injured. It's the same fake injury Luck had
