Cam Newton might not be jobless much longer …

Seahawks head coach, Pete Carroll, confirmed Monday they’ve reached out to the former MVP in wake of Russell Wilson‘s injury.

But, a signing might not necessarily be imminent … ’cause Carroll added the team is also “talking to everybody that could help us.”

Still, the contact could certainly precede a contract, with the ‘Hawks in desperate need of QB help while Wilson is out for the next couple weeks battling a busted finger.

Geno Smith has filled in well for Wilson so far, but the depth behind him ain’t exactly robust — and Cam is definitely the best option among free agent signal-callers.

For his part, Newton, who was released by the Patriots in August, has insisted he’s ready to play, saying in a video over the weekend, “I still get that urge to go out and perform and do something that I’ve been doing since I was 7 years old.”

Newton also explained he’s gotten the COVID-19 vaccination … and added he has been getting “offers” from teams.

“The realization of it is,” he said, “it has to be right.”

Newton started 15 games for the Patriots last season … throwing for 2,657 and 8 TDs.
