Cam Newton has reached an agreement with the New England Patriots, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It’s a one-year, incentive-laden deal, the report adds.
Former NFL MVP Cam Newton has reached agreement on a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the New England Patriots, league sources tell @mortreport and me.
Newton now will step into the mix to try to help replace former Patriots’ QB Tom Brady.

This is quite a surprise. The Patriots seemed determined to go into the season with the lackluster QB crew of Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer. If healthy, Newton is clearly the best option.
This upcoming NFL season is jampacked with fascinating storylines. And Newton, with Bill Belichick, on this Patriots team, is already near the top of the list.
