Warren Moon says Cam Newton would be good fit in Jacksonville

Warren Moon tells TMZ Sports ... Cam Newton would be a good fit in Jacksonville — saying the quarterback has a great shot to start over Gardner Minshew!

Newton has been team-less since the Carolina Panthers cut him last month ... and the market for the former MVP hasn’t been great.

In fact, Cam’s been heavily linked to the L.A. Chargers, but the Bolts haven’t reciprocated the interest. Like, at all.

Enter Moon ... who says Cam’s next best option might be down in Florida — ‘cause the Hall of Famer thinks Newton might have a real shot to beat out Minshew in Jacksonville.

How can the New York Giants land Yannick Ngakoue?

Is there still a path for the New York Giants to unhappy pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue from the Jacksonville Jaguars?

Leonard Fournette: “Some people are gonna be surprised this year.”

“I do believe the Jaguars are gonna put a couple pieces around me, try to get everything going. We have a great quarterback [Gardner] Minshew, we got DJ [Chark], we got Dede [Westbrook], we gonna put some pieces together with our line, we have tight ends,” said Fournette. “I think some people gonna be surprised next year.”
