Newton will compete with veteran journeyman Brian Hoyer and second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham for the starting position. These three will compete in training camp, and Belichick will have to make a decision. Replacing Tom Brady won’t be easy, but Newton has a lot of talent. Stidham has speed and a great arm. Hoyer has a lot of experience. Who will step in as a replacement for the greatest of all time?
