Former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton signed a deal with the New England Patriots and he already acts like a Patriot.
The veteran quarterback agreed to sign a one-year deal with the team. His deal will be packed with incentives. Although Newton received the league minimum, he is more than excited to join a legendary team.
TMZ reporters greeted Newton after arriving at Los Angeles International Airport. The quarterback was wearing his colorful outfit and also had his mask on. They asked him a few questions, but the newly-acquired Patriots quarterback didn’t say a thing. Some say that he already acts like head coach Bill Belichick. Do we need another Belichick in the organization? Of course we do.
Cam Newton is a Patriot
We believe coach Belichick will be more than happy to see this attitude. Newton follows his example. He has learned his lesson and it shows. Well, he didn’t really do nothing. In a recent YouTube video, Newton seemingly confirmed the signing of the contract. Don’t forget that the 2015 NFL MVP has yet to earn the starting quarterback job in New England. Newton will have to compete with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer for the starting position. He has a lot of talent, and Stidham is talented too.
Newton’s history of injuries may be a problem, but Belichick signed him for a reason. In 2019, Newton sustained a foot fracture and the season ended for him. He also had two shoulder injuries in the past three seasons. But, Newton keeps sharing videos of his workouts. From what we can see, he trains really hard to earn Belichick’s trust. Let’s see how wil the Patriots handle his talent. His MVP award says a lot about his talent.
We really hope to see Belichick make the right decision. He needs to dot he best for the team. Belichick let Brady go. How will he use Newton in 2020? The only thing we can do is wait and see what happens in the next couple of months. Will Stidham take the lead role? Will Newton start games for the Patriots?
