2021 NFL Starting QBs, Ranked

31. Cam Newton — Carolina Panthers

2021 Stats: 6 games, completed 69-of-126 passes, 684 yards, 4 TD, 5 INT, 5 rushing TD

With Darnold hurt (again) last year, another year of his career went to waste. The Jets decided it was time to start fresh and opted to trade Darnold to Carolina. Now in a better situation in which he is surrounded by numerous weapons — including Christian McCaffrey — Darnold got to a productive start with the Panthers. However, he quickly regressed and was playing some terrible ball before being shut down with an injury…leading to Cam Newton’s return. Newton is no longer a quality starting QB. The Panthers will have a new QB1 in 2022.
