Watson legal case update
We continue to update one of the offseason stories in the NFL news: Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson’s legal case.

Panthers would exercise fifth-year option on Darnold
The Carolina Panthers acquired QB Sam Darnold via trade with the Jets, who was ending his contract after the 2021 season.

With this, the quarterback will receive more than 23 million dollars in that time.
The Panthers will let Bridgewater decide on their future
Following Sam Darnold’s acquisition, the Carolina Panthers now must make a decision on QB Teddy Bridgewater (starting 15 games under center in the 2020 Season). The team will let the veteran talk to other franchisees about the possibility of being traded (making the process easier). The NFC South team does not rule out staying with the player, but they will let him decide on his future.
