What’s next on the list? Veteran quarterback Cam Newton has been making headlines with his role in the New England Patriots and his status for the upcoming game. Where will Newton go? Newton won the MPV award in 2015 and that says a lot about his role with the Patriots.
The veteran is coming off a bad season and he is set to enter free agency in March. Will he return for another season with the team? His 2020 training camp was different and Newton got COVID-19 which forced him to miss Week 4 of the season. He also lacked strong weapons. Head coach Bill Belichick has to give Newton the right weapons in 2021. That’s the only way to see better numbers from the veteran.
Radio show host Dan Sileo seems to have the answer.
According to the controversial radio host, Newton will be “on the roster in 2021.” How does he know this? His “friends” with the Patriots told him.
Sileo knows a few things about Cam Newton and his status with the Patriots
Sileo is a former football player who played collegiately at Maryland and Miami. His NFL career was pretty short, but Sileo didn’t distinguish himself as a starter or contributor on this particular level.
The radio host bounced around between small pro football leagues. He was part of the World League of American Football, the Arena League, and the CFL, but retired and got into radio after the 1994 season.
Many would agree that Sileo was controversial. He likes to shock others with his raw and unapologetic takes. Yes, this did land him in hot water on many occasions. In 2021, WDAE fired Sileo for referring to the late late Vincent Jackson, Cortland Finnegan, and Jonathan Vilma as “monkeys.” Should we mention that all three players are or were black? Some people didn’t like any of that.
In 2013, WQAM fired the radio host for making bad remarks about female sports sideline reporter Erin Andrews. Florida radio station fired him later that year for another huge mistake.
WMEN fired Sileo for placing a bounty on the head of Florida State Seminoles star Timmy Jernigan.
