The Bears made their move at quarterback last week, but that doesn't mean they'll be left out of other quarterback rumors. 

This week's edition: Cam Newton. Again! The 2015 MVP will reportedly be released by the Panthers today, a last-resort option after Carolina couldn't find a trade suitor. They did their due diligence, though, and that reportedly included chatting with Ryan Pace: 

Clearly the two sides weren't able to find a deal, as the Bears are now rolling with Mitch Trubisky and then, eventually, Nick Foles. They weren't even willing to give Teddy Bridgewater the starting job, so it's not entirely surprising that they weren't going to give it to Newton, who is an even bigger question mark, either.

There's a not-totally-unreasonable scenario, though, where Newton gets healthy and returns to being a productive starter for another team, giving a *very* vocal section of the fanbase even more gasoline for the fire. Being a general manager sure sounds fun!
