Report: Cam Newton Agrees to Deal With Patriots

Report: Cam Newton Agrees to Deal With Patriots

by June 28, 2020 0 comments

After a full offseason of speculation and recommendation that Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots pursue Cam Newton, a deal has finally come to fruition.

The Patriots have inked the former NFL MVP to a one-year, incentive-laden deal, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Newton, 31, has been linked to teams such as the Chargers and Bears, among many others. Newton now joins Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer in the competition for starting job in New England.

Signing a deal to be a backup will push Newton to get back to the level that he was valued at during his younger years.

Newton, 31, had some injury trouble with his shoulder in the past couple of seasons and is looking to rebound and return to the form that saw him consistently passing for almost 4,000 yards while rushing for nearly 600 yards.

Newton was the first overall pick in 2011 and won MVP that same year while being selected to the Pro Bowl and named a First Team All-Pro.

The Patriots, meanwhile, were looking like their dynasty had collapsed but perhaps have now reignited a new winning culture with another trick out of Bill Belichick’s book.

Against the Patriots newton is 2-0 with 525 passing yards, 106 rushing yards, and seven touchdowns.

The AFC East was wide open all offseason but has now returned to a similar state with the Patriots as the favorites yet again.
