Bridgewater became a fan favorite this past season after he stepped in as back-up in the wake of Drew Brees' hand injury. He went 5-0 during his stretch of games as the starter.
The move came shortly after the Panthers announced they had given QB Cam Newton permission to seek a trade — although Newton responded by saying he never requested one.
Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said Tuesday via Twitter that “every year difficult decisions are made and they are never easy.” Hurney said the Panthers are working with Newton’s agent to find the best fit for him moving forward.
Newton was quick to respond to the Panthers on social media, saying he didn’t ask for the trade.
