Without the incentives, Newton’s deal is worth $1.05 million. ESPN reported that this is the league minimum. Newton will compete with second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham and veteran journeyman Brian Hoyer. This means that he may get a chance to replace Tom Brady. The great Tom Brady who won six Super Bowls. Replacing a legendary player won’t be easy, and Newton will have so many responsibilities. TB12 is now playing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he will stay there at least two years.
