CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The biggest question Cam Newton got while dishing gravy, dressing and other fixings at his annual Thanksgiving Jam on Monday night wasn’t whether he would be the quarterback of the Carolina Panthers next season.
“Did I make the food?” Newton said with a smile while helping serve more than 1,300 underprivileged kids at Topgolf Charlotte.
However, Newton’s future with the Panthers has come into question since being shut down and ultimately placed on season-ending injured reserve after an 0-2 start because of a Lisfranc injury originally suffered in training camp.
The 2015 NFL MVP did not take questions about his future from reporters attending his event, but the Atlanta, Georgia native made it clear he hopes to be here past the last year of his contract in 2020.

“Charlotte is home,” Newton said. “Charlotte is a place I know people know me. They’re not just assuming. They know how I am. They know my energy. They know what I like and what I don’t like. For me to have that type of presence, it just reminds me that . . . it’s right.

“We’re looking forward to countless more years in Charlotte to impact the community in ways outside of the game of football.”
Team owner David Tepper made a brief appearance at Newton’s event and his wife Nicole helped serve food. Tepper made it clear last week that a decision on Newton’s future with the team hasn’t been made and the first priority was getting the first pick of the 2011 draft healthy.

“It means a lot,” Newton said of having Tepper at his event. “Him and his wife, just the unwavering support from them. There’s so many people that help along the process to make my life easier.
“From comments to text messages to voicemails to phone calls, it’s just great to see certain people never changing up on you and knowing you can always depend on certain people.”

This was the first time Newton took questions of any kind from reporters since playing in a Week 2 loss to Tampa Bay. He admitted it meant a lot having kids yell they missed him on Monday amidst what he called “trying” times dealing with the injury.
“It’s been a trying year for me in multiple ways,” Newton said. “But at the end of the day, being around this type of atmosphere helps you.”
Newton’s future with the Panthers, 5-6 after a 34-31 loss at New Orleans on Sunday, could hinge on several things. Beyond getting healthy, whether the current coaching and management staff remains intact if Carolina misses the playoffs for the third time in the past four years will be a factor.

Tepper said a week ago he would not accept “long-term mediocrity” and repeatedly talked about how he hated to lose. The Panthers are 12-15 since Tepper purchased the team before the 2018 season for an NFL record $2.275 billion.
If Tepper makes a change in coach Ron Rivera and general manger Marty Hurney, the new staff would have a say in Newton’s future.
How well Newton’s replacement, Kyle Allen, plays the rest of the season also could factor in. Carolina is 5-4 this season with Allen and 6-4 overall going back to the final game of the 2018 season. He has a current cap number of $495,000.
Whether to invest the $19.1 million the organization would save in cap space by releasing Newton next season also could be a factor with running back Christian McCaffrey heading into the final year of his rookie deal next season and the contracts of other key players expiring after the current season.
Newton has heard all the speculation, another reason the past few months have been trying and why Monday’s event personally was so uplifting.

“I don’t want to sound like I’m suicidal,” Newton said. “It’s just been tough. I was in a place where I wasn’t used to being. And you know a team you’re a part of is equipped with everything except for your presence, so to speak.
“Being in the position I am, being away from the game and missing the support and on-field interaction with the fans, and when you finally do come out to a showing like this in the first time in eight or nine weeks, that’s what you miss the most.”

CINCINNATI — The Bengals made their second quarterback change of the season on Monday.
Cincinnati will go back to veteran Andy Dalton starting with the Week 13 game against the New York Jets, Bengals coach Zac Taylor said Monday. Dalton will replace rookie quarterback Ryan Finley, who started the previous three games after Dalton was benched after Week 8.
“It was not an easy decision any time we’ve had to make it, which has been twice this year,” Taylor said. “But it’s in the best interest of the football team to do this and get Andy back out there.”

The switch comes as somewhat of a surprise after Taylor appeared to indicate that three games was too short of a window to evaluate a rookie quarterback. However, after more time had passed following the Bengals’ 16-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the first-year coach said he felt a change was necessary.

In three starts, Finley completed 47.1% of his passes for 474 yards, two touchdowns and five total turnovers. Against Pittsburgh, the NC State standout was 12-of-26 passing for 192 yards, one touchdown and a lost fumble, his third in three games.
When Taylor made the switch to Finley after the Bengals’ Week 8 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in London, part of the reasoning was to evaluate Finley as long as possible as the franchise prepares for the 2020 draft. The Bengals (0-11) are the lone remaining winless team in the NFL and have a two-game advantage on the rest of the pack for the No. 1 pick.
“He said he has to think about the future with the draft and we have to see what we have in Ryan,” Dalton said regarding his conversation with Taylor when he was benched initially. “That’s what it came down to. It’s been voiced to me I wasn’t the reason for the way the season has gone.”
But after the offense failed to score more than 13 points during any of Finley’s starts and averaged a mere 4.4 yards per play, Taylor opted to make the switch. The coach said it was hard to pinpoint why Finley struggled during his three-game tenure as the starter.

“You could plug a lot of guys in there and it’s not going to be that much of a different outcome, really, the way that those games played out,” Taylor said.
Up until he was benched this year, Dalton had been Cincinnati’s starting quarterback since the Bengals drafted him with a second-round pick in 2011. In eight starts this year, Dalton completed 60.4% of his passes for 2,252 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. Dalton is second in franchise history in passing yards (30,352) and is tied with Ken Anderson for the most passing touchdowns (197).
Taylor said the conversations between Dalton and him have been very positive in recent weeks. The veteran will be the Bengals’ primary quarterback option as they try to find their first victory.
“Now we are relying on him to help us win games,” Taylor said. “He’s going to take that and run with it.”
