We knew Cam Newton would take a precipitous fall in this year's NFL Network's "Top 100 Players" rankings. Monday night, we found out how steep that drop was following a 6-10 season.
Newton, who was the No. 1 player on the list a year ago, is now ranked 44th. He's the third Panthers player named so far, with tight end Greg Olsen and linebacker Thomas Davis checking in at No. 67 and No. 89, respectively.
Following his MVP-winning season of 2015, Newton set career lows in completion percentage and passer rating last year. After playing through the final three and a half games with a partially torn rotator cuff, Newton is now two months removed from shoulder surgery and on pace to return for the start of training camp.
