SEATTLE, WA - DECEMBER 04: Quarterback Cam Newton #1 of the Carolina Panthers celebrates after scoring a touchdown against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on December 4, 2016 in Seattle, Washington.

Panthers Trade Kyle Allen To Redskins

After starting 12 games for the Carolina Panthers last season, the Panthers have trade Kyle Allen to the Washington Redskins.

Allen was traded by to Washington for a fifth-round pick right after the Panthers signed the former XFL standout P.J. Walker. The third-year veteran played two seasons with Carolina playing 15 games with 13 starts. He completed 62.1% of his passes for 5,388 yards with 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. Allen, who compiled a 5-7 record as the Panthers’ starting quarterback in 2019, also rushed for 125 yards and three touchdowns on 37 carries. Now the quarterback is going to play for the Redskins’ coach Ron Rivera and play back up for the former first-round pick  Dwayne Haskins. Haskins went 2-5 as a starter during his rookie season.

Allen replaced the Panthers franchise quarterback Cam Newton after the quarterback had to miss games due to injury. Allen enjoyed immediate success as a starter last season, throwing four touchdown passes in the Panthers’ Week 3 victory over Arizona. But after leading Carolina to five wins in his first six starts, Allen and the Panthers ended the season on an eight-game losing streak that ultimately led to Rivera being relieved of his duties with four games to go in the regular season.

Now with Allen out of Carolina’s crowded depth chart, and the Panthers still trying to trade or release Newton, there is more room for a starting quarterback spot for the second-year quarterback Will Grier and Panthers’ newly signed Teddy Bridgewater.
