Cam Newton is back in the NFL. Not only is he back in the league, but he’s returning to the team he spent the majority of his career with, the Carolina Panthers.

On Thursday morning it was reported that Newton would be meeting with the Panthers and shortly thereafter Carolina announced that the 2015 NFL MVP is officially back. Newton’s signing comes as a result of Sam Darnold injuring his shoulder a week ago and the expectation of him being sidelined for at least a month.

While the news of Newton returning to the Panthers was a surprise to many, the amount of money Newton will be making this season is shocking. At the bare minimum, Newton will be making $4.5 million, according to Adam Schefter.

If Newton earns up to $10 million it would make him the 18th highest-paid QB in the NFL based on his cap hit. Newton would be making more money than the likes of Kyler Murray, Joe Burrow, and Daniel Jones, just to name a few.

NFL fans and media members alike were shocked to see the dollar figures involved in Newton’s newest deal with the Panthers.

Newton could theoretically start for the Panthers on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, but P.J. Walker is likely to get the nod this weekend.
