The Carolina Panthers have decided to bring Cam Newton, aka “Super Cam,” back home to Charlotte.

The Panthers signed Newton to a one-year contract worth up to $10 million for the remainder of the season, including $4.5 million guaranteed, and a $1.5 million roster bonus, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Newton is a familiar face at Bank of America Stadium. The Panthers drafted him No. 1 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. The 32-year-old even led the team to the 2016 Super Bowl, where they lost to the Denver Broncos 24-10.

Panthers coach Matt Rhule is in need of a healthy quarterback since starter Sam Darnold will miss at least a month with a fractured right shoulder blade determined by an MRI scan on Monday.

“A healthy Cam Newton is a special player,” Rhule said. “He loves Charlotte. He loves the Carolina Panthers. He made that very clear to me.”

“We had a heartfelt, sincere discussion with him and it wasn’t about anything in the past,” general manager Scott Fitterer said. “It was more about what are we going to do now moving forward and what is Cam’s role and how can he help us and what can we do to support him.”

Newton threw for 35 touchdowns during his 2015 MVP season when he led Carolina to a 15-1 regular-season record.
