The Carolina Panthers are set to sign Teddy Bridgewater to a 3-year, $60 million deal this offseason. This not only ushers in a new era for the team, it all but confirms that Cam Newton will be traded this offseason.

Currently, the Chicago Bears (+170) are favored to land the former NFL MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

They'll face some stiff competition from the Los Angeles Chargers (+210), who are also searching for a new signal-caller after moving on from Philip Rivers this offseason. Armed with all of their draft picks, including the No. 6 overall selection, the Chargers certainly have the ammunition to make a move.

Following that top two is the Washington Redskins (+430). With the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL Draft and Dwayne Haskins entering just his second year, it's hard not to view them as a long-shot.

The New England Patriots (+470) check in with the fourth-best odds. With Tom Brady on his way out of town, taking a gamble on Cam Newton while his value is at an all-time low would certainly be an on-brand move for Bill Belichick.

Rounding out the top five, we have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+600). The Buccaneers are currently favored to land Brady, so it's hard to see either them pursuing Newton.

Given how quickly this story has moved, these odds will surely continue to shift as the offseason progresses.
